"We know what hunger is. We’re used to feeling it up to two, three times a day. But between this mundane, common, repetitive as well as constantly satisfied hunger and the desperate hunger of those who are unable to satiate it there’s a rift as wide as the world itself." – "Hunger", Martín Caparrós
"This is what happens in the human world. In the world we have created.” – Mallence Bart-Williams
In Niger, 1 in 3 adolescent girls aged 15 to 19 have already given birth or are pregnant. A large proportion of their children die in the first weeks, months or years of life. The reason for this is extreme malnutrition and poor access to appropriate medical assistance.
