Luanda, Angola, May 19, 2006.A homeless looks for food in the garbage near the Sonangol oil refinery. More than 70% of Luanda's 5 million inhabitants live below the poverty threshold in slum areas. With vast natural ressources (oil, diamonds, gold, water...) Angola is potentially one of the richest countries in Africa.  Between February and June 2006, more than 30000 people were infected with cholera in Angola's worse outbreak ever; more than 1300 died.
