Siabatou Sanneh arrived in Paris from the Gambia, mother of 2, running most of the distance with a bidon on her head and a strong message, “In Africa women make this distance everyday for fresh water”, an alert, a call for the extreme drought, the African issues with water, something that the West neglects, with the UN and its institutions well below of what they should do.
