Sad to see a child looking cachectic like a cancer victim. Starvation is just as deadly and can leave these children with brain damage even after they recover.
This is where drip irrigation techniques may do a lot of good. Unfortunately, it may be too late for that, as the social disruption may have gone too far to allow for the necessary cooperation.
When our governments allow fracking and other fossil fuel consumption, we should remember what it does to these people. Eventually it will do this to us too Then there will be nobody to donate money to relieve our distress. The Koch brothers certainly would not give a dime.
