In the Pilibhit District of Uttar Pradesh is the small village of ‘Vishan’. Amongst the tiny population of the village lives a young 10-month-old Mabiya, the daughter of Md. Kadir and Sayra.
Mabiya, in the initial months of her life, has struggled with poor health and is currently severely unwell, courtesy “killer” Diarrhoea. The disease, most caused by poor personal and community sanitation, is the second leading cause of death in children under the age of five. However, it is both treatable and preventable, yet it claims lakhs of young lives each year.
