Description : "Look. Before, fields used to stretch as far as the eye can see. We even had fish that we used to sell as far as Mopti, but now the fishermen are gone because of the drought and the pirogues have been turned into firewood. There are a few farmlands left but we are regularly attacked by bandits. They often steal the women's harvests when they go to the market to sell their corn or when they come back", he explained to the ICRC team that visited him.
