Between life and death – In the last two years the draught has had terrible consequences for the population of Oumbinea; the population is now on the grip of famine; the only chance for survival lies in migration. However, the journey towards “the promised land” is too difficult, people are exhausted and many people die. After thirteen days of walking, they finally arrive to a transit camp. Safety is now close, the doors open on to new hopes.
