Gaza's housing crisis

Around 96,000 homes were destroyed in the bombardment, leaving tens of thousands of families struggling in the harsh winter without a home. And aid agencies say that number is set to increase due to dwindling relief and slow restoration.
According to the Gaza Reconstruction Mechanism, an UN-brokered deal between Israeli and Palestinian authorities - an agreement was reached to enable construction work "on a large scale" in the area.
However, it includes an arrangement that restricts the flow of "dual use" materials into Gaza, comprising of cement and other essential building materials, supplies that could be seized for military purposes by Hamas.
As a result, few homes have been rebuilt despite international pledges amounting to billions. The United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) said they were forced to suspend its cash assistance programme at the end of January after running out of money.

The agency claimed that to date, it had only received $135m (£87.8m) in pledges, leaving a shortfall of $585m (£380.6m), and the number provided to Palestinian refugee families to repair the homes was far less.
Aid agencies have subsequently found innovative ways to temporarily accommodate Gazans, as temperatures plummet in the strip.
Makeshift temporary homes made out of metal and wood have been created in a bid to evade Israeli restrictions on imports into the territory.
The Catholic Relief Services told Reuters that the agency had built 70 temporary homes in Khan Younis, a town in southern Gaza heavily damaged in the 50-day war, and has funding for 100 more. Forty families are reported to have moved so far, but remain in cramped conditions.
A UNRWA spokesman told Channel 4 News that some material was being allowed in to the territory, but it was still not enough. Christopher Gunness said: "We had to suspend the programme because we ran out of cash.

How to catch all the fish in a lake within 15 minut

In the past, Bamba is said to have been covered in lush green forests. The lake, which is considered to be sacred and populated with good spirits, used to offer tons of fish that contributed to local food requirements. But with changes in climate, desertification, and the passage of time, the region gradually became dry, infertile and inhospitable. The locals now face huge problems such as unavailability of water, but the lake still represents a precious resource to the local Dogons, but one which they exhaust every year during Antogo. The event is held on the 6th month of the dry season, generally in May, but the exact date is fixed each year by the council of wise men. Saturdays are market days in Bamba, and for the first three market days of the month wooden sticks are placed in the middle of the lake, acting as a signal, a warning that the ritual is getting closer. On the day that is finally designated as the day of Antogo, hundreds gather from all parts of Mali around Bamba’s lake. The 3 biggest groups are formed by the most respected and ancient families of various Dogon villages. The group from Bamba itself is usually the largest. These groups of people maintain a collective mystical silence, except for the wise who recite incantations and praise deities. When they are done speaking, the ritual itself – and all the magic associated with it – begins. 16 more images after the break...

he children and men form a frame of sorts around the lake; women are prohibited from participating in the ritual as they are considered impure because of their menstrual cycles. Once the frame is formed, they wait and watch, until the tinkling of a bell and a gunshot is heard. Then, hundreds of Dogon jump wildly into the lake, armed with fishing baskets, attempting to catch as many fish as possible, as fast as they can. The caught fish are quickly stashed into local leather bags, but sometimes people keep them in their mouths until they can find a place for storage. The Dogons soon become unrecognizable, covered completely in mud. The dance continues, nevertheless, and the fishing quickly turns into a frenzy. All this goes on for about 15 minutes, when a gunshot marks the end of the ritual. All the captured fish are put together and handed over to the oldest man of Bamba, the village elder, who will make sure the catch is properly distributed among the villages.
