A woman prays while her sister, Lamung Kailing, is treated for injuries sustained from mortar shrapnel December 27, 2012 in Laiza Hospital, Burma. Lamung Kailing, a mother of two, was working on a watermelon plantation when two Burmese Army mortar grenades landed near her and three other villagers.
In 2011, the Burmese army ended a 17-year ceasefire and launched an offensive against rebels in northern Kachin state. Since then, around 100,000 Kachins have been displaced.
