Description : He explained to the ICRC the difficulties he has to face everyday: "This land is a nightmare but I don’t know where else to go! We keep loosing buffalos because of mine accidents. For us, one lost buffalo means less food on the table for my children. I fear for the children, the nearest hospital is too far and with no car and very little money, survival is not guaranteed should the worst happen."
