    Her only daughter is gone

    This is a sad story of a South Sudan refugee baby girl who died due to severe malnourishment in a refugee camp in Uganda. The mother, a 21 year old, lost touch with het husband as the family crossed to Uganda for safety. Upon reaching the camp, the baby developed fever which the mother took lightly. and due to the congestion at the health centre, she failed to find a doctor to help her. It was until some World Vision staff found her laying down under a tree shade in the camp with her frail baby. the two where rushed to a medical facility being operated by MTI but sadly the baby died three days later. the mother had only one daughter plus a son, who however stays with his grandmother. Without her husband and only child she had come with to Uganda, Ajok is but an empty shell!
