    Background: Many people in southern Bangladesh are still suffering from the after-effects of the cyclone which struck the Bay of bengal in November 1970, bringing a massive tidal wave.

    Bhola Island, lying in the mouth of the Ganges, took the brunt of the cyclone and its estimated that 350,000 of the island's population of 1,200,000 lost their lives.

    Malnutrition among young children, whose parents can not provide protein foods, is a legacy of the cyclone.

    the United Nations Save the Children fund has set up three mother and child centres on Bhola Island. Local health workers show mothers how to feed their children and distribute a high-protein power provided by the U.N.
