Bana woman - Ethiopia

    Newer Older

    She wears the hairstyle of the married women. Bana, like Hamar women have a very hard life, carrying everything like water or grass. Usually they are promised to a man at the age of 10 by the parents, but will discover their husband the day of the wedding.
    Allt he babies who have physical problems or who are born before the wedding are killed or abandoned. NGO try their best to save them in Jinka.
