She sacrificed her expected better childhood and further education being father become old with chronic sickness. Father lost his family income being productive livelihoods assets damaged and sold. '' We have nothing left to sell expect our souls'' Father said.

    Saving the life for the other family member through access to food, father forced to encourage Nagah to accept marriage in spite of her small age and weak body. Father`s thoughts focused more on how to gain money and ensure food access rather than risk of causing Nagah to death. Many similar cases increased among IDPs preventing them from their basic rights and more negatively leading to death.
