One man, Khadim, came to the medical Life Center with tears in his eyes.  He said that he needed to go to work in the fields, but his body was not letting him do any work.

His wife was also sick, and if he does not work in the fields, they will not have anything to eat. He said that it had been two days since their family had only eaten one meal a day. If he did not go to work that day, they would sleep hungry.
