Ouara, Ouaddai, Chad

Adjoua Abakar (19), the mother of two girls, fills a jerrycan with water collected from a well in the middle of a dry river bed next to her home in Mourra village. Her husband left two years before to work in gold mines in the Tibesti mountains and since then she has not heard from him and he has not sent any money. The shortages have led to one of her children suffering from malnourishment. To earn some money, Adjoua Abakar sells grilled grasshoppers in the near-by market.
