Photographer Mike Wells took this picture to dramatize the extent of starvation in Africa.

Starvation in Africa isn't about the rich countries of the world not donating enough food, it's about the stability of local governments. The story behind a picture of a starving child is more complex than it looks at first glance. It's not a story primarily of need, it's a story of warlords, warfare, corruption, and callous disregard for human life.
That's how it was in the 80s in Ethiopia, in the 90s in Somalia, today in the Sudan and elsewhere. If it was simply a problem of getting enough food to the people who need it starvation in the world would have been virtually eliminated several decades ago.
When you look at pictures like this don't just think "oh, it's so tragic and sad", think instead that there is someone somewhere rather nearby who is effectively enabling this, who is killing these people just as surely as if they were dropping bombs or shooting bullets.
