Description : Every day, she has to walk three kilometres to the closest food distribution centre, carrying her youngest daughter. "It takes me about an hour to get there. Then, I often have to queue up for more than three hours to get a food ration. Then, another hour to return… It's tough and tiring but I have no other choice," recounts Um Ahmed.
