After the World Food Programme (WFP) delivers the monthly food rations, the heavy sacks of cornmeal and plastic containers of cooking oil must be carried to family homes from the food distribution site in the center of the refugee camp. There are many ways the food will be transported. By wooden bicycle is one way. Here you see children loading a rickety wooden bicycle with heavy sacks of cornmeal(maize). The children use chunky rubber bands to affix the piled sacks to the central wooden plank.
This is only one example of the intense manual labor demanded of daily life on a refugee camp.
