Somali Mother Seeks Treatment for Malnourished Child

A mother looks at her malnourished and dehydrated child lying on a bed in Banadir Hospital in the Somali capital Mogadishu. Somalia is gripped by a devastating drought and famine that has already killed tens of thousands and is leaving many hundreds of thousands more, particularly young children and babies, in desperate need of emergency life-saving humanitarian assistance from the outside world.
