The images on the video are taken from MSF footage and AVIS footage. The theme of the video is “Making Bread” – an essential part of daily life; In the village, bread is made from wheat grown in surrounding fields and milled by hand.

The photos on the website are not from the village, but they do show a woman making bread (women make the bread in the village) and children eagerly waiting for the bread to be ready.
