what are the root causes of this?
In third world countries one usually sees the MNCs or the rich companies/persons usurping fertile land for making commercial complexes, the low wages that are given to the labourers

a) take away religious dogma about using contraception
b) make it freely available
it won't solve the issue but it would ease the problem.
They did try forced sterilization in India in the 70s...
Whilst I agree with your sentiments, it's a dangerous road to travel down. It is very easy to conceive(note the rise in world population in the last 100yrs.
The solution would be compulsory contraception, mass or forced abortion...or mass or forced sterilization.
Every single sector of society(some religious, some not) would fight against some or all of these.
The only way to halt this is through greater economic independence and education(particularly for women - the more educated a woman the less children she has).
Statistics worldwide do show that in some 3rd world countries families of below-average earning bracket have more kids that the average and/or above-average families.
It is surprising to hear the reasons parents give why they have more than 5 children :)
Now in this modern world it's v. true....."Poor is always poor".....as well poor will become poorer due to rich people....who becom richer by hijacking the poor peoples assets...
Nomerci, Fully agree... it is not the child's fault that he was born within a poor family. Parents are generally resilient and they should have taken care of him with available resources and fiscal stability, then probably we could have seen a smiling face of the child in this thread. This is just one case, how many more innocent lives have devastated across the globe due to various reasons....
Well, Oryx, yes...but in the end it does come down to the men and women to reproduce or not....
Either I CAN afford to bring a child into this world with all that may encompass , or I can't...as simple as that.IMHO But I AM responsible for the well being of this child, nobody else is.
Would that concept involve responsibility for actions?
But then again in many countries female health care is not available and I believe that would make a huge difference.
Countries like Pakistan have money for the army but not for women's health care.
Countries like the Philippines ban contraception in some areas.
And then the general social pressure to have children.
So I would say family, government and society's expectations.
Poverty is no excuse for a person to give up.
For the children sake...these (poor) parents need to strive to take care of their kids. It's their responsibility to take care of them coz they brought these kids to the world.
For me, its a pathetic and POOR (pun intended) excuse not to do anything to alleviate their situation because they're poor.
The photo was taken to do that purpose: to awaken your emotions. But what emotions? Pity? Compassion? Then what?
Pitying or having compassion for them doesn't do them good, would it?
What can WE do to help? we could think of a lot of ideas what to do and what not to do about it...but all are just ideas...UNLESS one lifts a finger AND DO SOMETHING...
Azilana, it has always been my opinion that those who are, for what ever reason, not able to take care of children, should not have any. Period.
Lion King, indeed...it incites a lot of anger inside me for those responsible for it.
I am a mother, and yes, sights like those break my heart.
Nomerci, Regardless of the circumstances, and whoever is responsible for it (may be parents are squarely responsible), it is a heart wrenching scene... Just imagine how may hurdles and challenges the child has to face in real life for survival.....
There are millions of kids suffering. Kids with special needs that have never been able to live a normal life. I believe that these kids deserve some happiness. They have been under depression and they have not been able to experience a normal life... =(
Lion King, it is not life that has put this burden on the child, it is his parents who did that.
This picture has touched the base of my heart. How harshly life has put burden on his shoulders at this nascent age!
