Why do skinny Africans have big stomachs?

I don't get it. I see it on those "Donate to poor Africans" shows where they show starving Africans, but some of them have such big stomachs, while others have such small stomachs, that you can practically see their ribcage because they're so hungry.

What causes their stomachs to bulge so much?
