Ahikam Seri

Wadi el-Na'am, Negev desert, Israel

Children play next to a couple of donkeys in the unrecognised Bedouin village of Wadi el Na'am which stands next to an Israel Electric Corporation's power station and the Ramat Hovav hazardous waste disposal facility in Israel's southern Negev desert. It is estimated that up to half of Israel's originally semi nomadic Bedouin population of around 170,000 lives in settlements that were built without planning permission which means that they are ineligible for municpal services such as electricity and sanitation and are unable to vote for representation. Though the state has built towns in the Negev where a certain proportion of the population now lives, there are still dozens of unrecognised settlements and the numbers are rising.
