THE LION'S LOOK

Bamba Makourani, 80, crouches in her mud hut in Massadougou, Northern Ivory Coast on July 18, 1995. Blind for decades, because of river blindness, she thinks it is all because of a sorcerer. With the most successful program since smallpox, the World Health Organization will have rid 11 West African countries from the disease by the turn of the century. Twenty years ago, more than 70 million West Africans were at risk of getting river blindness. (AP Photo/Jean-Marc Bouju)
