25 Jan 2017 description

By Moustapha Diallo, IFRC

Hasinatu Camara’s baby boy is crying incessantly. He is certainly hungry. Camara frantically rummages through her skilfully tied up pieces of luggage, to reach for her baby’s food.

Camara is one of the 95 refugees staying in a hall, at the premises of the Olympic swimming pool, in Dakar, Senegal.
