These children are starving, they live in a place with extreme poverty. Most of the time these young children in poverty struck areas are forced t work at young ages while still not being able to get food.
This calls me back to India SO badly!---Also true among the poor is that fact that children everywhere take care of other children. Here Vishal Singh, cares for a baby girl while her mother is away in the Kusum Pahari slum in south Delhi, India.
Image by an Iraqi artist taken in an orphanage. This little girl has never seen her mother, so she drew a mom on the ground and fell asleep with her. Such a sad picture. I can only imagine the heartbreak children like this feel.
