Description:
No. 1532, Tyre, Lebanon, March 1952. Too little, too late! The tiny Arab refugee baby, shown here in his mother's arms, is now dead. When discovered by Christian welfare workers, he was already a living skeleton, his tiny body wasted from the ravages of malnutrition. Though emergency food of high nutritive quality was immediately supplied the child was already too weak to respond. There are many Arab children like these among Palestinian refugees, and it is only occasionally that Christian relief can save them, this mother, clad in Western church-contributed clothing, is now heartbroken, because the little one which had become so dear to her, especially under the care she had so desperately rendered with little means, is now gone from her miserable life.

This hospital which has 65 surgical and maternity beds is the only one which is purely devoted to the needs of the 450,000 refugees in Jordan, although by arrangements with local hospitals some 860 beds can be used. Salt Hospital is staffed entirely by Palestinian doctors, nurses, and orderlies. This picture shows a small patient who seems to be thanking the churches and the United Nations for their care.
