A baby girl whose parents can't afford to provide her with milk has been living off boiled coffee grounds for over half her life. 

Hadijah Haura, aged just 14 months, drinks three baby bottles of sugary coffee at around 1.5 liters, every day. 

The Kopi Tubruk Indonesian coffee is made by boiling course coffee grounds with sugar, resulting in a thick drink similar to Turkish coffee. 

Hadijah's parents, from Tonro Lima Village, in Indonesia's West Sulawesi province, are mostly unable to provide their daughter with proper sustenance.
