As the first light entered a window above the altar of the 4th century church each morning, Palestinians sought the rituals of normal life, such as brewing hot tea. They used camper stoves or candle wax burning in pots to hot water. Wires overhead hold gilded lamps, which the Palestinians rigged to recharge their mobile phones until electricity was cut off by the Israeli military. Those inside used the phones to talk to family members, friends and journalists. The church became quite chilly at night. In the foreground, a man cocooned in blankets discoverd in the Casanova hotel, which is linked to the church complex. Trips to the hotel were treacherous, as they required passage through a courtyard under surveillance by Israeli soldiers, an automated sniper crane and a reconnaissance blimp.

Milckyase, 5, who is malnourished, stands in an orange tent at the Morocho Therapeutic Feeding Center, outside Awasa, Ethiopia. Milckyase's father said he is a coffee farmer and it took them one day to reach the center on foot. Children like Milckyase suffering from malnutrition are at high risk of skin infections, malaria and pneumonia. Malnutrition can potentially affect her future learning capability and the development of her internal organs. The tents for acute patients are usually filled with silent children, as the children are too weak to cry. Save the Children runs Morocho Therapeutic Feeding Center.
