    World Food Programme(WFP) released videos showing the reality of starving North Korean children and the aftermath of flooding.

    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zAcwHZraZGs]The Face of Hunger in DPR Korea - YouTube[/ame]
    This video shows the starved and malnourished children of a nursery of Hwanghaedo area, and flood-destroyed bridges, roads, and rice paddies.
    The children of the nursery have no focus in their eyes due to the malnutrition, and skin diseases all over them due to unsanitary water. With just skin and bones, they don't even have the strength to stand; the whole nursery is full of children just sitting like living corpse. It is an extraordinarily saddening scene.

    The food shortage of North Korea only worsened after the recent flooding. European Union and the USA have been showing willingness to provide food aids, but it is unclear whether the government of North Korea will actually and honestly deliever the food to the starving citizens.

    Little children who should be playing outside innocently are dying helplessly because of a flawed society. We can only hope for North Korea's willingness to solve this food shortage problem.

    No place is evil, the state and it's policies that create starvation, now that's evil.
