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. (WCC photo)
