Tulasa Khadka, 14, who got married when she was 13 and gave birth to a stillborn baby weighing less than 1kg a week ago, rests at home in the remote village of Dungi Khola, near Chhinchu, Surkhet district, Western Nepal, on 1st July 2012. Tulasa eloped one year ago and didn't use contraceptives. She walks through the hills to the nearest hospital and she went into labour while on her way there for a checkup at almost full term. In Surkhet, Save the Children partners with Safer Society, a local NGO which advocates for child rights and against child marriage. Photo by Suzanne Lee for Save The Children UK
