Malnourished children in Diyarbekir

The original caption reads: “These are some of the small number saved from starvation. These little ones have not yet begun to gain flesh, but their digestion is recovered. I stood by the bedside of a dying girl with whom Dr. Little had worked for weeks exhausting all her meager facilities for recovering the health of the digestive organs.”
