Meliya Abdella had an arranged marriage at 14 and became a mother at 15. Now she's 19 years old and nine months pregnant. But it’s not her firstborn who is malnourished, it’s Meliya herself. She receives food so the baby’s death doesn’t start the day of its birth.
“All that I have, I give to my daughter,” says Meliya, who also will receive an 18 kilogram food ration from the government for her family. “I know I have to eat for my baby, but I just don’t know what to do right now.”
