The sun was scorching hot, the ground was cracked and burning the soles of her bare feet, but Lemuso trudged on. She was tired, hungry and thirsty but she had to walk the remaining seven kilometers to the relief station at Kimit town where she hoped to get some food and water. Lemuso slightly squeezed the little hand in her left hand. Her daughter, Randi, slowly turned her head to look up at her and without a smile, returned her focus on the dried stretch of land ahead of them. Lemuso felt a painful tug at her heart, seeing her daughter this way made her sad but she had to be strong, she had to be hopeful though she could neither afford a smile. They continued walking in silence.
