Mozambique. Province of Maputo. Moamba is a small town (150 km from the caiptal).  A white doctor (expatriate) looks at a small boy laying on the bed and firmy kept still by the nurse hands. The child suffers from a liquid poisoning. He has swallowed petrol. Beacause of the war between the Government and the rebel of the Frelimo party, the roads are either mined or too dangerous to travel on. Moamba can only be reached by plane. The non governmental organisation (ngo) Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) of Spain has rehabilitated the hospital. © 1992 Didier Ruef
