This is beyond heartbreaking. What group can be notified that would be in a position to help?. There has been some publicity. There should be a public outcry.

NOTED. This is the result of global-wide cruelty by the rich and privileged. Only a few dollars could have treated and cured this entire family. Now they will starve.

I don't know why I read these heartbreaking stories - I get so angry about this sort of thing and the worse thing is that I can do nothing except comment. We already subscribe to the Fred Hollows foundation which improves the sight of people in these poor countries. With all the rich people in the world today surely a clinic could be set up to treat these poor people. The lack of adequate nutrition needs to be addressed without delay.......
