ARTE Reportage decided to top up the professional cartoonist's already full appointment diary by giving this French-Burkinabe a rather unusual assignment: produce a comic-strip report in the camp for Darfur refugees in Breidjing.
Sent by ARTE Reportage to the Breidjing camp for Darfur refugees in eastern Chad, the photoreporter Laurent Van Der Stockt organized a workshop and handed out cameras to ten refugees, male and female, aged from 10 to 33.
After surviving the black days of the Central African conflict, Didier Kassaï set off for Lebanon. For ARTE Reportage, Didier Kassaï wandered through the maze of the Burj el-Barajneh camp to recount the daily existence of Palestinian refugees, turned upside-down by the arrival of Syrian refugees.
The Burj el-Barajneh camp in the southern suburbs of the Lebanese capital is not an unknown territory to her. Her images recount the destiny of its inhabitants, the stigmata of war, the fleeting joys of the everyday existence of people awaiting a new life, in a city of cubes piled up one on top of the other.
