Don't forget this child

UNICEF feed and treat hundreds of thousands of children.
But tragically, 320,000 children are still acutely malnourished and on the brink of death in East Africa.
Elijah is one of them. He is 11 months old – though he doesn't look like it. When he was admitted to the UNICEF-supported Provide Clinic in Korogocho in Nairobi, Kenya, he weighed less than 10 pounds.
He had malaria and measles, and suffered dramatic weight loss.
He can make it. But only if the world remembers we have the power, and the will, to save lives.
More people need to see these images, need to read these stories... and it starts with you. I want you to share the image in this email. It's so easy – just click here and click "Share" to share with your friends on Facebook. Or, forward this email to a friend.
There are more than 600,000 people receiving this image of Elijah today. All it will take is each of us sharing this image once – either on Facebook or by forwarding this email – and we will literally flood the Internet with a simple, powerful story.
This is precisely what this crisis needs right now. But it won't work without each us doing our part right now and sharing this image.
Let's use our collective power to turn the world's eyes back to the children who desperately need more help.
With gratitude,
