An Australian nurse helps a South Sudanese infant fight to live

07 March 2017

The infant's eyes showed she was a fighter. Jessica Hazelwood, a pediatric nurse from Australia, met Nyanene, a small, underweight child in South Sudan. And the two bonded. Jessica spent weeks with the child, and worked with the infant to try to help her overcome her pneumonia and malnutrition. This short photo story captures the intensity, emotion and effort that Jessica – like many of the women in the field across the ICRC – pours into her work every day.
