30-Hour Famine

A Family of Four Breaks the Limits with One Heart!

53-year-old Myangansay and 36-year-old Byambasuren have two children: 12-year-old son Turbold and 10-year-old daughter Tursaihkan. The family lives a simple yet happy life. Each day, they work together to make cheese products or biscuits; in their free time, they play Mongolia’s traditional ‘ankle bone’ game, savouring every moment they can spend together.

However, behind the scenes, this loving family faces much hardship. Father Myangansay suffers from chronic back pain and cannot work long hours, resulting in unstable household income. His wife Byambasuren is visually impaired due to a serious illness she suffered as a child. Coupled with a lack of mobility in her right foot, she faces discrimination when it comes to getting work.
