When Amina fell into labour unexpectedly, she was rushed to the hospital and her husband left work to be at her side. While en route, he was struck by the blast of a car bomb aimed at a government official. He died from his injuries the same day. It was a very difficult birth; Amina gave birth to a baby girl and slipped into a coma for six days. When she regained consciousness, she was informed that her husband had been killed on his way to the hospital. She feels that she still has not recovered from the shock and is distraught that her daughter will never meet her father. She currently survives on the generosity of friends and acquaintances, and whatever support she can receive from the community.
