Harouna, Aboucabar and Zeinabou : The Children of Noma
by Christian Lajoumard

Harouna, Aboucabar, and Zeinabou, three Nigerien children all having extremely developed Noma, will be transferred to Europe to be ‘reconstructed’ there. Over between eight and twelve months – depending on their time of hospitalization – we follow the evolution of these children in a completely different social context from the one where they grew up : one being accommodated by a hosted family, the other in a foyer with other children from a wide variety of nationalities, all come to Europe to be treated.
