James the fisherman risks losing everything to feed his family.

When they had no food, he faced a terrible choice: stay home and stay hungry or put everything on the line to go out onto the water in his small canoe. Five fishermen a month – many he called ‘brothers’ – were dying in storms at sea. Just like him, they couldn’t afford the life jackets, compasses and other equipment they needed to stay safe at sea and get a good catch.

When he came back home 16 hours later, aching, exhausted, hungry, he would be empty handed.
