Life on the Horn

Mo Harawe

For over a decade, toxic waste has been dumped illegally on the coastline of Somalia.

The earthquake and tsunami in 2004 damaged the toxic containers and spilled waste, which caused the spread of diseases. Many people left their villages but some stayed and lived with the consequences.
