Migrants Abandoned in Searing Sahara

(June 29, 2018) In June, Algeria abandoned 13,000 migrants in the Sahara desert, leaving them without food or water. Men, women and Ariane Kirtleychildren were forced to walk in the blistering heat, or die. Meteorolgist Kait Parker of the Weather Channel discusses Algeria’s current treatment of migrants with Ariane Kirtley, founder and director of Amman Imman, during this interview. They also talk about the various causes at the root of migration, and how to support populations at risk so that they may have recourse to other solutions rather than abandoning their homes.

The Deadly Migration: After losing 90% of his livestock, Mohammed travels to Libya several months a year to conduct petty-commerce. He describes the horrendous clandestine passage through Niger’s northern Sahara: “Men and women migrants travel on heavily over-packed trucks, which often overturn, killing almost all onboard. When trucks break down, passengers are left to die of thirst and hunger.” With a heavy heart he leaves his wives and children with few resources to survive during his absence. #picoftheday #humanity_shots #fathersday #ig_global_people #azawak #niger #africa #worldfaces #ig_energy_people #people_storee #people_infinity #ir_people #ig_africa #unlimitedafrica #loves_africa #shotsofafrica #peopleofafrica #natgeohumanity #thepanafrican #father #fetedesperes #african_portraits #great_captures_people #fatherson #humanity_shots_ #magic #loves_people #migration #love #fatherlove
