“I learned that Mohamed, a little boy I had photographed a few days before at a hospital in Sanaa, had died. At 8 months old, he was the same weight as my daughter at birth.”

On our latest episode of Hacking Hunger, Marco shares his experience visiting the children and families who have become innocent victims of Yemen’s war. Listen above for the full story.
