Just outside of Meliandou is a grave marked only by stones. It is the last resting place of a two-year-old boy named Emile Ouamouno.

The vegetation grows quickly since December 28, 2013 when Emile died.

Two years earlier here is baby Emile in his father’s arms; they all appear content with their new role in life.

The main path into Meliandou village (at 8.6224 -10.0649) shows a wonderful place to live a basic lifestyle. Click picture and see 21 people living there, and two sheep.

All of these photos were clipped from a movie provided by UNifeed and created by the UN’s Department of Public Information and UNICEF. They are free for news purposes when their source is quoted. I cleaned and adjusted them for better visibility.
