Her mother says she was healthy when she was first born three months ago:
Malnutrition and lack of milk and sugar because we cannot afford to bring milk and sugar and she became like this. She was better when she was born , she was laughing and crying
I tell all mothers to take care of their children and feed them well, this is the second child I have and they are dying infront of my eyes and I cannot do anything.
