"I grew up in Libya in abundance and I believed my people lived in similar conditions. My father never told me.
This is pure hunger. Life in the Sahara is hard. It's tough even for the young people so how can the elderly take it?
I can't stand the way my people are living here. People here can't even bathe. There is no light or electricity. No phone network to stay in contact with the world.
At night it is really cold here. People living in this desert are constantly getting sick.
A lot of illness. They don't have hospitals, they don't have medical tests.
People get used to it but my God this Sahara is tough. This Sahara is tough.
(Mahamad Hassan Tuareg in Sahara Desert)
