Daily Dose Pick: Starved for Attention


With close to 200 million children suffering in silence from malnutrition around the world, Doctors Without Borders and VII Photo have teamed up to spotlight the epidemic.

Starved for Attention is a joint campaign that presents multimedia videos focusing on centers of childhood malnutrition, from Burkina Faso to the United States itself. The presentations comprise a traveling exhibition, and are also featured on the campaign website, which is premiering a new one each week through July 19.

Four of the mini-documentaries are already available on the site (and embedded below), while the fifth one, “Mexico: A Solution from Within,” goes live next Tuesday. Visitors to the website can also sign a petition to demand humanitarian aid for threatened children and keep up to date on the latest developments.

Visit the Starved for Attention website, get news and updates on the campaign blog, and find out how you can help.
