JAMES TOWN HARBOUR- ACCRA, 25th May, 2020- Fisherfolk rough it out in the rains since the government demolished over 400 structures- homes, schools, churches and even public toilets for a Chinese funded $50 million harbour project to commence. The most affected are migrant fisherfolk. They’re afraid the lack of sleeping places will make them extra vulnerable to COVID-19. __________________________________________ Photo and Words by Nana Kofi Acquah (www.nkacquah.com) @africashowboy (Copyright: 2020) www.nanakofiacquah.com. #stopcovid19 #stopcovid29gh #accra #jamestown #leica #leicaq2 #nanakofi #nanakofiacquah #nanaacquah #ghana

Mayowa, an actress, lives in a compound with three other families. Each family has a room and everyone shares the bathroom and kitchen space. She stays in one room with her daughter. "We want them to know that there’s no money, there’s no food. We have spent everything that we have; no more income,” she said in late April. We don’t have tap water, so we have someone who fetches water for us. We pay 300 naira for 10 jerrycans. Sometimes, we get it twice a week. We keep the water in the containers outside. ... “I’m very scared of that coronavirus. The hunger and the sickness. Everyone is broke: no food, no money. We don’t want to die.” — As the Covid19 pandemic continues to spread, safe access to clean water remains one of the most effective measures against transmission. But not everyone has water readily available to them. Spent a few days reporting and photographing on water access in Lagos with @danpaque for @washingtonpost. At the time, Lagos was still in lockdown, it was very bittersweet to be able to make planned movements and hear how many were dealing with it. Many thanks @olivierclaurent.

Police marching band walking at parade for Somaliland’s 29th Independence Day on 18th May. It was a surprise parade no many people turned up, and days before that government officials hinted on no celebrations while people are practicing social distancing with the covid19 spread.

THE SEA IS NOT DOING WELL Her belly hurts from all the plastics we shove down her throat each day. The sea is not doing well. Fisherman pull in full nets only to discover they caught 80% plastic and 20% fish. The sea is not doing well. She conceals her heart-break with bright blue skies and calm turquoise waters. The sea is dying. Our greed and pride are killing her. 📸Photograph and Words by Nana Kofi Acquah (www.nkacquah.com) @africashowboy (Copyright: 2020) www.nanakofiacquah.com. #plasticwaste #pollution #sea #ghana #africa #grist #ricohgr3 #ricohgriii #nanakofiacquah
