Mama Rose.

Larry (from the Huffington Post, posted April 2011):
“Mama Rose Nambing lives alone in her community in a small village in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. No one speaks to her, and people avoid her. Mama Rose has lost her entire family, seven children and her husband, to malaria. Her isolation is because people are afraid they might be touched by the same fate. As she explains these deaths, she gazes into the distance. She did not know malaria comes from mosquitoes. She did not know… this deadly disease…takes a child every 45 seconds in Africa. Now Mama Rose is alone. But across the continent, mothers just like her continue to cradle sick children and watch them grow worse, as the malaria parasite attacks their bodies.”
