Princess Mary felt compelled to help.
The popular Danish royal travelled to Africa on an awareness-raising mission.
Mary visited Dadaab Refugee Camp in Kenya – which hosts people that have fled various conflicts in East Africa, including the civil war in southern Somalia.
The Tasmanian-born royal met with mothers of malnourished children to hear their stories.
A mum-of-four herself, Mary could no doubt empathise with their wishes to do their best for their children.
