92. Emate with her youngest son Dikon. She survived a brutal attack but had to pay for her medical treatment.

I met Emate at the hospital three days after the attack. She had bandages all over her body and was barely able to speak. She said that she was tortured by four men, her relatives. Only a year later, Emate told me that three of those men were her sons. They never apologized to her.
After leaving the hospital, she grabbed her youngest boy and left her village for good. She never saw her older sons again.

I wonder what it is like to live in such pain, knowing that your own flesh and blood wanted you dead. Human cruelty truly knows no bounds.
