(News Deeply) –  The desperate state of Syria’s Eastern Ghouta region made international headlines in late October when local activists released the photo of an infant girl who had starved to death. While her case received significant attention, severe malnutrition and a lack of medical supplies have killed a number of other children in the besieged suburbs outside the capital – deaths that have largely gone unreported. Before the tragic death of one-month-old Sahar, Kinan, a 6-month-old boy with leukemia, died in August, because he received only one of five drugs needed for his treatment, a physician who works for the Union of Medical Care and Relief Organizations (UOSSM), an international organization that provides free medical aid to Syria, told Physicians for Human Rights (PHR).
