Indonesia is struggling to cope with a devastating wave of COVID-19 cases driven by the highly contagious Delta variant, which has left hospitals overflowing and meant many infected people unable to get a hospital bed simply die at home.

Moussa Kamara, 47, a baker and a Tolou Keur garden caretaker, helps to install a water reserve at a newly built Tolou Keur garden, which holds plants and trees resistant to hot, dry climates, and are planted with circular beds that allow roots to grow inwards, trapping liquids and bacteria and improving water retention and composting, in Boki Diawe, within the Great Green Wall area, in Matam region, Senegal, July 10, 2021. Kamara is part of a project that aims to create hundreds of such gardens - known as 'Tolou Keur' in Senegal's Wolof language - that organisers hope will boost food security, reduce regional desertification and engage thousands of community workers. "This project is incredibly important," said Kamara. "When you grow one tree, over 20 years people and animals will benefit from it."
