Sandimhia Renato is 18 years old and lives in Quelimanie, Northern Mozambique, with her one-year old baby Diani. Sandimhia’s family has no access to a toilet. She walks 15 minutes every day to defecate in the bush, having to cross a dangerous bridge where she knows women are attacked at night.

Sometimes I wait until dark to go there so no one can see me. I will be very concerned about Diani, my daughter, going to the bush because it is so far from here.

At night it is very dangerous. People get killed. A woman and a boy were killed with knives. One woman I know of has been raped
