Harinasoa is a single mother of six, her middle son (Sena) is underweight and her last daughter is severely ill. Their diet nowadays, like many here, constitutes of boiled corn and fresh prickly peers. The family’s daily average spending is 500ar (~15cents). By the time I arrive, Sena was already on his third bag of plumpynuts, a soft mix of peanuts, dry milk, sugar and additives. This bland food is packaged on the island and distributed as primary food aid by organizations.
