Traditonal Medicine

21 June 20012. Abu Shouk: Fakih (master on traditional medicine), Sidig Ahmad Mohamed, prepares a treatment against mental illnesses. The client has to smell the smoke that comes up from a piece of paper (with Koran sentences written on it) fired with charcoal, roots from Sudan and species from India. This treatment usually costs between 100-200 Sudanese pounds (20-40 US dollars), depending on the level of the sickness. Photo by Albert Gonzalez Farran - UNAMID
