Sadakhan’s infant son (middle) suffers from epilepsy. But she is stateless, which means she cannot work or claim benefits, and that in turn means she cannot afford to take the three-year-old to see the doctor or pay for medicine. “When an attack starts and I have no medicine, I just hold my son tight in my arms. It does not help to treat his condition, but at least I am with him . . .”
