Ghana - Blekusu - Alice Kwashi, 68, posing outside her house in the village of Blekusu. The ocean has destroyed part of the old woman's house, filling it with sand and contaminating the freshwater well with saltwater. In order to prevent water from seeping into the house, the woman built a small barrier of soil just outside the entrance. « When I fall sleep, I don't know if the sea will come and take me away » she explains.
