Unresponsive. Weak. Dying. One-year-old Jane was suffering. Severe kwashiorkor, a type of malnutrition that causes painful swelling, ravaged her body.
Her father had recently died. At his funeral, Jane’s mother abandoned her. With no one to care for Jane, one of her uncles took her into his home. But he had several children to provide for and barely any food to share with his little niece. Jane grew weaker and weaker. Her uncle was helpless to do more for her. All he could do was wait for her to die.
