Photojournalist and National Geographic storyteller Ed Kashi has traveled to rural Peru to document the effects of Chronic Kidney Disease of undetermined causes (CKDu), which risks turning into a global epidemic and may be exacerbated by global warming. With this series of OneShot videos, we give voice for the first time to the subject of the featured photograph. Mary Marixa Pacherres Álvarez was diagnosed with CKDu eight years ago, and has been on dialysis ever since. She is raising four kids in the same house with her parents. Her 13-year-old daughter stopped going to school in order to care for her.
