She seems surprised when, unexpectedly, the outline of a baby appears on the monitor.

With winter starting to factor into people's thoughts, prospects seem grim for many of the migrants living in the notorious "Jungle" camp in Calais, in northern France. The French government has vowed to shut the camp down once and for all. Another barrier—a 13-foot-high, half-mile-long wall—appears set to go up. And just this week, Calais residents held demonstrations and set up roadblocks demanding that the camp be razed.

Even though assistance to the camp appears to have thinned, people are still making their way there.

"It’s serious for children here," says Bernadette Ammaji, 37, as she prepares food for malnourished children and their mothers at the Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) therapeutic feeding center in Bokoro town, central Chad. "Some mums don’t have the means to be able to feed their children. Others do, but they fail to take proper care of them due to a lack of education about hygiene and nutrition. You need to be strong and brave to care for a child here. It’s not easy."

On June 3, the town of Bosso, in Niger’s Diffa region was attacked by the Islamic State’s West Africa Province (ISWAP), also known as Boko Haram. The raid, during which dozens of soldiers were reportedly killed, was one of the deadliest ever in the region. And it forced tens of thousands of people—including most of the population of Bosso and the neighboring towns of Yébi and Toumour—to flee.

The majority of these newly displaced people had already been displaced by violence previously; Bosso and surrounding areas were supposed to be a sanctuary.
