This young lady strolled up to make my acquaintance as I started the engine to prepare to drive out of the Refugee camp in Oru-Ijebu, Nigeria. Proably born on the camp without regular meals, running water or electricity (the Nigerian government didn't pay bills so the camp got disconnected), this is the only life she knows. The refugees are mostly Liberians but there's a sprinkling of Congolese, Rwandans, Sierra-Leonians, Malians, Sudanese and a few other African countries.
