Modina, 28, and Abdul Rahman, 32, are the parents of Moran who is one month and two weeks old in this picture. Moran means 'death' in Bengali. The parents decided to give their baby this name since their three previous children all died at an early age, and they thought that this baby would not survive either. The baby was severely malnourished, and in this picture he has been taken to a larger hospital in Dhaka for investigations.
After the picture was taken, Moran has been gaining weight and is now healthy, happy and smiling. His parents have now renamed him Taher, after one of the MSF health promotion workers who is working closely in assisting the family.
