This video was produced by Mahmoud and is drawn from a series of 7 videos and some photographs sent to him by his family in Niger. Mahmoud is an asylum seeker who now lives in Germany.

This video attempts to show both the arid nature of that part of Niger but also the struggle to regreen the land by tree planting.


This material is part of the Covid Chronicles from the Margins project, funded by The Open University and The Hague. The project aims to highlight the impact of the pandemic on refugees, asylum seekers & undocumented migrants.
