Century Direct Group Report – Wardo Mohamud Yusuf is just one of thousands who had to decide between life and death for their children. While walking with her two children to get away from the devastating drought in Somalia, her young four year old boy collapsed. She tried giving him the little water she had left, however, he was not conscious. Nobody was willing to help her out by providing any water or food since they fear they won’t survive. She unfortunately had to make a choice nobody would want to have to make. And she ended up leaving her unconscious son at the side of the road.
Sadly Century Direct Group Report has learnt of many situations where parents have to decide which child has the best survival rate and who should get the last licks of food or water. Very disturbing.
