Cecilie (right) sleeps as she prepares to leave the Annapurna Neurological Institute in Kathmandu. She is exhausted and worried. Victoria (left) had surgery two days ago when 1.5 litres of fluid was drained from her brain; she is now feverish and crying a lot. 19 month old Victoria (formerly named Ghane) was born with hydrocephalus and was left abandoned. Cecilie Hansen was so moved by the story of Ghane she read in a Danish newspaper that she decided to fly to Kathmandu to try to assist her and show her the love of another human being; Cecilie eventually became her legal guardian. Victoria died on November 19 2010 from heart failure.
