Photojournal: Chad urban migrant's story
Village chief

One of Omar's first meetings is with the village chief, Gombo Dana Moirhal his own older brother.

Gombo says Tchoffal should have 670 people, but years of drought have pushed many away in search of a better life.

"The drought has been terrible, it's been a disaster for us.

"There's so little rain, all our cattle are dying. The lack of water means people cannot irrigate their fields - there is no way for people to earn a living here. I don't blame them for wanting to leave."
