The difficulties in rational consumption increased the number of diseases among the population, especially in children, elevating the rates of infant mortality. Lamadrid tries to draw attention to the consequences of the poor distribution, the lack of sanitary conditions and the absences of an irrigation systems in Malawi, which means they are failing to fulfill one of the basic millennium objectives for African.

Soon, the exhibition will travel to the cities of Malaga and Huelva, although the dates must still be confirmed.
