Etat du livre : New

Description :

Language: N/A. Brand New Book. Niger, a vast and arid state on the edge of the Sahara desert, is one of the poorest countries on our planet. Its infant mortality rate is the second highest in the world and even when the harvests are good, a shocking 40 per cent of Niger s children -- over a million -- suffer from chronic malnutrition. The Al Madad Foundation and UNICEF have joined together to fund a water and sanitation project in Niger and under their joint auspices, a team of photographers spent a month travelling around the country recording what they found there. As with two other books of pictorial reportage by the Foundation (Silent witneses: the lives of Palestine s children and Kashmir s children: the silent witnesses of the earthquake), this latest volume follows the same format: a portfolio of over 150 photographs, alongside reproductions of the children s artwork.

Synopsis : Niger, a vast and arid state on the edge of the Sahara desert, is one of the poorest countries in the world. Its statistics are grotesque. Ranked last out of the 177 countries on the UN Development Programme's Human Development Index, Niger's infant mortality rate is the second highest in the world. Even when the harvests are good, a shocking 40 per cent of Niger's children - over one million - suffer from chronic malnutrition. The Al Madad Foundation and UNICEF have joined together to fund a three-year water and sanitation project in Niger. Without good nutrition and clean water children die, communities cannot grow or prosper and energy cannot be invested in individual or communal advancement. The need for mere survival becomes a daily, unrelenting struggle.

It is to be hoped that this remarkable collection of photographs and drawings may help the powerful in this world to finally realize the shameful neglect of a country which no one seems really to care about.
