Aminata holds two photographs of herself before and after she lost her sight.
​In 2011, militants attacked her home in the Yopougon neighborhood of Abidjan, Côte d'Ivoire, and blinded her by releasing toxic gases. Both her corneas melted. Here, Aminata is with her sisters at home.
​Aminata's mother, Fanta, in the courtyard of her home. When her home was attacked, the militants killed her son, his wife and two of Fanta's step children. They were accused of hiding weapons and their home was under siege for seven days, while the bodies of their slaughtered family members were kept in their home. When the stench became unbearable, the family was ordered to bury the dead in the courtyard of their home, where they remain to this day. Abidjan, Côte d'Ivoire.
