“Brick building and lack of straw in Mandou, Guinea” by Manigbè Sidiki Camara, May 2021

Manigbè Sidiki Camara, resident of Mandou, says: “There is a lack of straw in our village because of the scarcity of rain, which is why we have formed an association to make bricks to build houses out of tin. With our women, after the harvest, we join together to buy sheets of metal to reduce the straw huts because we lack straw. 

There is a lack of water in the village, our women have to walk 3 km to find the water that we use to make bricks and for other purposes.  

The scarcity of rainfall worries us in the village.”
