Photojournal: Living with asthma and pollution

Junaid Membuccus, 11, and his family live near an oil refinery in an industrial area in Durban, South Africa. They all suffer from respiratory ailments which they blame on air pollution.

Junaid enjoys playing cricket with his sister Yasmin, but has to take frequent breaks to use his inhaler.

"I like cricket, but I have to carry my asthma pump in my pocket when I play, because sometimes my chest gets very heavy."
