A Million Shillings: Escape from Somalia




The Horn of Africa is an assembly point for thousands of men, women and children fleeing from war, abuse and hunger. This is the place from where they hope to find a better life. And there is only one way out: across the Gulf of Aden. Alixandra Fazzina, member of NOOR images and winner of the UNHCR Nansen Refugee Award, followed these emigrants at close quarters and saw the world in its purist form; that of life and death.

A Million Shillings is available from publisher Trolley Books.
