On 26th April 2013 the Belgium newspaper De Morgen showed the impact a photo can have. The front page displayed a large photo of a wounded little Syrian boy (made by Sebastiano Tomada and he is awarded with the 2nd place of the World Press Photo contest). The boy is victim of the terrible bloody civil Syrian war. Displaying this shocking photo was a well thought-out act of the newspaper to get the attention they needed for the Action Day for Syria. The aim of this action day was to collect a huge amount of money to help the civilian victims of this war.
