Mary lives in Kuanya Village. She hasn’t eaten in two days and her tummy aches with emptiness. Mary’s 11-year-old stick thin body from is exhausted and weak from years of severe hunger. She is so hungry that she is eating leaves to survive.
“I cannot sleep when I’m hungry. I cannot walk well. I have pain in my stomach. All I can think about is food,” she cries.

“You want to know how hungry and sick we are? Then let me take you to the tombs of my two children.”
