Brendan Borrell, for the Pulitzer Center

A troop of baboons clambers up the granite rocks overlooking the Mauricedale Game Ranch, some 25,000 acres of South African brush squeezed between Kruger National Park to the north and the country of Swaziland to the south.

Guatemala: A Divided Country's Hidden Hunger

The little girl does not smile. She doesn't have the energy. Hopefully she will soon.

She is in a rehabilitation clinic in Jocotan, Chiquimula, a province in the far east of Guatemala, near to Honduras. Her name is Domitila, she is nine years old. Her body is emaciated, she is fragile. Patches of her hair are missing, the veins in her legs show through her skin. Her face has a perpetual look of sorrow – the muscles are too weak to change expression. Other children in her family were in similar shape, the nurse tells me.

According to Hindu mythology, Yamuna is the daughter of Surya, the sun god, and sister to Yama, the god of death. Goddess Yamuna is associated with sanctity and purity. But not even godliness would have saved the river from the twin evils of a poorly managed sewage and a reckless disposal of industrial waste.
