Asiah Dagane holds Mihag Gedi Farah, her seven month old child with a weight of 7 pounds, 8 ounces (3.4 kilograms) at a field hospital of the International Rescue Committee, IRC, in the town of Dadaab, Kenya, Tuesday, July 26, 2011. Mihag Gedi Farah is 7 months old, and weighs as little as a newborn with the weathered skin of an old man. His mother managed to get him to a field hospital in a Kenyan refugee camp after a weeklong odyssey, but the baby's anguished eyes, hollow cheeks and fragile limbs show just how severe Somalia's famine is becoming.
