She knew what to do. As a village health volunteer, she had been through this many times before. First, she would pack her bag; a solar torch, blanket, satellite phone, umbrella, emergency birthing kit, and a jacket to bear the cold temperature outside.

It would take at least an hour on the bus if the rocky, dirt road wasn’t flooded.
