  • This ispowerful set of pictures and captions. I like the fact that it makes an immediate impact with strong messages: terrible plight of the refugees, the massive generosity of Mali villagers who also have nothing, and need for our help - all without the need for us to 'mug' up much background information.

Transcript

  • 1. Niger: refugees from Mali
  • 2. Thousands of people have been forced to cross the border from Mali to Niger. The population of Sinegodar village in Niger has risen from 1,400 to more than 8,000.
  • 3. Most of the new arrivals are sleeping in the open air. The “lucky” ones use sheets to protect themselves from the sun during the day and the cold at night.
  • 4. There is only one well in Sinegodar. It produces unsafe water – now shared by more than 8,000 people.
  • 5. Baby Abdullah is one of eight new-born babies in Sinegodar. There is only one nurse and no medicine in the village.
  • 6. A shelter in Sinegodar, shared by a family of six. There is great solidarity between the villagers and the new arrivals – but this is one of the poorest regions in the world, which was already facing a looming hunger crisis.
  • 7. People’s immediate needs include shelter, mats, blankets, cooking utensils – as well as food, water and medicine. We are working with our local partner and other agencies to respond to the emergency.
  • 8. Please keep all those affected in your thoughts and prayers. Photos: Michel Monginda Mondengele /CAFOD
