Two in five babies born to the Bihari live to the age of five.

In March 2004, the Bangladesh government discontinued all food relief to the camps, making it even more difficult for families to provide for themselves. Most women continue to give birth to an average of 4 to 6 children. Two in five babies born to the Bihari live to the age of five. Exhausted and sick, a mother rests with her newborn twins. Only weeks old, both already suffer from malnutrition.
