On the Mat

On the Mat - Niger, 2005. This photograph was taken on my first day in Niger during the severe famine in the summer of 2005. There was a Supplementary Feeding Center and Hospital set up by Islamic Relief in a town called Telaberi, just outside of Niamey. The children there were primarily treated on an inpatient basis, as they were considered extremely high risk. Here you see a mother nursing her emaciated baby outside, trying to get her a little fresh air.
