Description : Abdou, brother of Isa who went missing in 2004. After Isa left, his parents died, "from suffering", according to Abdou. So he had to take charge of his 10 brothers and sisters. However, "Isa left behind the best of the treasures", Abdou says, "his two sons". He left as well his wife Aminata, whom Abdou married in 2012. "If I had the means", he says, "I would leave myself to Europe, I do not mind the danger. The burden of the family is too heavy, too many mouths to feed." He attends the ICRC and Senegalese Red Cross Society support group together with his wife Aminata.
