2.  Indonesia

This photo of a one-arm, one-leg beggar washing his child in a polluted river is heart-breaking. Despite his poverty, despite his extreme handicap, he still finds the power to take care of his son. And we are complaining of not having hot water one day…

3. Romania

This iconic photo, takenby James Nachtwey right after the Romanian Revolution is tragic, because it force us to see beyond our daily ride at the supermarket, to understand more than the regular newspaper we are reading, to become aware of sufferance, misery and to feel guilty that we have so much while others have so little, and it is not even their own fault.

4. Somalia

In 1992, this child was feeling such a hunger as you will probably never feel in your life. Necked, with no hope for the future and born in a world that has no means to support him, this Somali child seems to have no reason to keep fighting. How many children must died of famine since then and how much food did we throw away last year?

5. India

These are the Untouchables, the low-caste workers of India. They are traditionally the outcasts of the Hindu society and the worst is that they had no right of improving their condition. A newborn in this cast will be an untouchable all his life, condemned to clean toilets and streets,remove garbage for the rest of their life. Things are way better today, though, as big city life tend to diminish the importance of casts.

7. Afghanistan

What does God has to do with guns? Everything, for these soldiers who are praying with their weapons underneath their body!  The mujahedin featured here were pictured in 1986, during the war against the Soviet army.
