Nepal - Meghauli - Sanju Bhatta, 29, in her house in the village of Meghauli, in the Central district of Chitwan. Bhatta lives alone with her four kids, aged from ten to two, after her husband Rameshwar Bhatta left to work in Qatar as a driver one week ago. The couple has been married for 11 years. Rameshwar left Nepal to repay the loan the family took to build their house, leaving Sanju to look after their fields and small store. “I am alone. I have to cook, farm, feed the animals and raise the kids all by myself. They frequently ask me about their father” she says. Rameshwar frequently calls her. “The only think he complains about is that he has to work so hard for such a small amount of money”.
