She's got a big one, compared to her body that is. This was one
of a group of children on the outskirts of Abomey. Extremely poor
and malnourished. This girl had the telltale signs - losing hair,
swollen belly, not am ounce of fat on her body. It took a bit to
get the kids comfortable, but after seeing their faces on the LCD,
they warmed up a bit. A happy bunch of children, wish I could have
helped them a bit more.

Taken just outside of Abomey, Benin.

the contrast between the kid's dire circumstance and her stunning smile is just too much; situations like this are avoidable and should not be allowed to prey so incessantly on so many generations
