Projects: Angola I - Truce & Consequences: Truce & Consequences

A third of Angola's population has been displaced by the country's long civil war. Tens of thousands will be returning to their villages from Internally Displaced Person's camps to start planting before the rainy season begins. However, in remote villages like this one, inaccessible during the rainy season, there is nothing to eat, no seeds to plant, no medical care and the land is riddled with landmines.Sambotto, Angola.Photo © J.B.
