You guys really should watch that Doctors Without Borders video I just reblogged.

MSF does such amazing work and most of us fail to realize just how dire the situation is in the DRC. Sign the petition and learn about what MSF is doing to save lives.

“Democratic Republic of Congo: The Malnutrition That Shouldn’t Be,” the fourth story of malnutrition as part of the Starved for Attention campaign, has now launched!

In a somber, yet bold, reportage, photographer Franco Pagetti reveals the daily struggle to survive in North Kivus forbidding bush and teeming, fetid displaced persons camps, where food is scarce and the people are on edge, ready to run at a moments notice.
