My cousin’s 11-month baby died of hunger

“there is no greater tragedy”.

This was my friend told when he learn that one of my counsin’s 11-month old baby died of severe malnutrition.

When i first heard the news, my mum said the baby could have died of dengue fever. But it turned out later in his death certificate that ‘severe malnutrition’ was his cause of death.
There is no greater tragedy when things happen within your family circle.

As i was just getting started to advocate food as right, it came as a shock to me that it happens to my relatives.

I never thought that such issues, which i have been trying to get attention from the community happens to my relatives.

Indeed, ‘there is no greater tragedy’…Paita oy.
