These twins were born little more than two weeks ago in a Muslim IDP camp near Sittwe. Their mother suffers tuberculosis, is very weak and can't breastfeed them. The family is so poor that they can only given them cheap powder milk not suitable for infants, so they have not received proper nourishment during their first two weeks of life. As the Burmese government has expelled all INGOs and international agencies working in the area, neither the mother nor the twins can receive any medical treatment.
