Fire, burns and scars

Mary burned her hair and face when she fell into the flames of an open fire on which she was heating water for tea. Mary has epilepsy and the accident happened whilst she was having a fit. She remembers nothing but the pain. Now she is being treated at Kamuzu Central Hospital's burns unit in Lilongwe - she is slowly on the mend. Image by Nathalie Bertrams. Malawi, 2017.
