A boy collects water from a muddy pond in Toya, a village in northern Mali near Timbuktu. The region was seized by Islamist fighters in 2012 and then liberated by French and Malian soldiers in early 2013. The Sahel region has been affected by a food crisis for years, often exacerbated by severe droughts.
