Syrian civil war has left more than 300,000 people dead and devasted the whole middle east. Recently, an image of a malnourished child crying in pain went viral on various social media networks. The horrific image single-handedly shows how grim the current situation is in Syria.

In the eastern region of the outskirts of capital Damascus, a child weighs just 4 pounds was pictured. He was carried by a nurse in a clinic in the rebel-controlled town of Hamouria.

Yahya Abu Yahya, doctor and regional head of medical services for Turkish NGO Social Development International said:

“Of these, 80 were suffering severe acute malnutrition, 200 had moderate acute malnutrition, and about 4000 were suffering from nutritional deficiencies.”
