That night, close to the village of Unuunley, his father buried him by moonlight. It was the tenth such burial he has attended in a month, as the worst drought ever recorded here has swept across the country.
This family was once sustained by a hundred animals but is now down to its last goat. Ms Saeed has been surviving on one meal of rice a day and is so hungry that she could not produce breast milk to feed her malnourished son. Now that she has lost him, she has no time to grieve; she has four remaining children to worry about.
