Description : The mother and the child were displaced from their home when heavy rains flooded and destroyed their home in the beginning of December and have struggled to find their footing since. As the family struggles to make ends meet, the child has become sick and severely malnourished, now weighing just 7.1kg. "He's been sick for almost one month now," says the mother, "we have no home now so it's difficult to provide for him like before."
