Tent Distribution Problems at Mbera Refugee Camp, Mauritania
According to her identity card, Oumi Walet Idwale was registered as having arrived in the the Mbera camp for Malian refugees in Mauritania on 14 november 2013. As of 11 March 2013, when this photograph was taken, she and her father had still not received a tent in which to live. According to Oumi they have repeatedly been told that there are no tents available, but that they should keep checking back. Oumi does not know what has happened to her mother - when her village fled Mali in a panic they were separated and she has not seen her mother since.
