Niger part 2

Tearfund have published another story from my recent trip to Niger here:

Another very strong and memorable story from a very moving visit.

The oldest daughter in the family, Lajoie, who is only 13, returned from collecting leaves in the surrounding countryside while we were interviewing her mother.  It’s a lot of responsibility for such a young girl to be finding her family’s food, and hard to do while you’re hungry yourself.

Lajoie, Niger (for Tearfund)
