Three-month-old Mary James is being treated medical staff in the Malakal Protection of
Civilians Camp in South Sudan. For the first two months of her life, Mary slept in a crowded
tent with no blanket on a steel bedframe with no mattress. One month ago, Mary’s mother
Sarah brought her here with severe, pneumonia. Until recently, Mary has been connected
to an oxygen machine. Still now, she struggles to breath through her infected lungs and her
exhalations are laboured and raspy. When she cries, she often cannot get the air she needs.
