This exhibition travels to the heart of Africa, to the birthplace of humanity, to Kenya, from the solidarity project Cirugía en Turkana (Surgery in Turkana), which started in 2004 out of an initiative by a group of surgeons in the Ramón y Cajal hospital who set out for Lodwar, where the Turkana people live. This nomadic people have seen their way of life threatened by the devastating consequences of climate change and overexploitation of resources. Lake Turkana, a vital centre of the community, is in danger of drying up. This exhibition shows visitors their way of life, of thinking and feeling, and the strategies that could help them in an environment that is drying up.
