Salt Mines of Mali

In the West African desert, gathering and hauling salt is a grueling task not meant for the meek. Camel caravans still move the tablets to market.

This video shows us a hard work of the salt mine workers in Mali. Since the eleven century the salt mine has been working in a small village Taoudenit. The abrasive salt sand eats away workers' bodies and many of them have sores all over their feet and hands, but there are neither doctors nor help for them there. Salt miners prepear salt tablets which are loaded then on the camels and it takes for about fourteen days for caravan to deliver them, crossing the desert, to Timbuktu. Reading direction from the stars and suffering from the water shortage, caravan moves ahead just as it did thousand years ago.

This video shows us (replace the for a) hard work of the salt mine workers in Mali.

Since the eleven century the salt mine has been work( replace ed, for ing) in a small village called Taoudenit. The abrasive salt sand eats away workers' bodies and many of them have sores all over their feet and hands, but there are (I think replace no for neither) doctors nor help for them there. Salt miners prep(are) salt tablets which are loaded then (then loaded) on the camels and it takes (for it is not needed i think you made a typo error )about fourteen days for the caravan to deliver them, crossing the desert, to Timbuktu. Reading direction from the stars and suffering from the water shortage,(the) caravan moves ahead just as it did thousand years ago.
