Caption

Proud parents smile upon their newborn daughter Atikta Haoua Riane at her official naming ceremony or "indeeri" in Lagdo of the Northern Province of Cameroon, one week after her birth. Due to high infant mortality rates, babies are not named until they have survived his or her first seven days, therefore parental joy for the new addition to the family is precarious and cautious. After posing for photographs, the baby was blessed by the family's priest and guests.
