Princess Anne of Britain on October 25 and 26, visited a centre for starving children who are victims of flooding in Bangladesh. She was received in Bangladesh by the President, Lieutenant-General Hossain Ershad. The Princess went to a nutrition unit in Dhaka run by the Save the Children Fund, of which she is the president. A year ago her mother, Queen Elizabeth, visited the centre - and the pictures of her with the starving infants made headlines around the world. Afterwards the Queen said she would tell her daughter to visit the centre. On her visit, Princess Anne saw some of the poorest children in the world. In the past six months doctors at the centre have treated more than sixty thousand people for malnutrition. Ninety percent of the patient return to their homes. A new unit to cost around one million US dollars is due to be built nearby, and Princess Anne is spearheading the campaign to raise the money.
