For the Children front cover detail


A sheep costs more than 200 euros. So why do many poor families buy one? Surely it is really difficult to find the money?

These are the questions I asked in the weeks coming up to Eid. A version of the answer I often found was:

“For the children. To have the sheep, to have new things in the house, to have new cushions for the sofa. You want the children to have a happy Eid.”

For the children is a collection of photos taken on Eid al-Adha in October 2013 in Asilah, Morocco.

These are photos of the dummy book.
