Photojournalism: Two young people feeds their cow at nights as they buy it from the livestock market ahead of the Eid al-Adha festival in the old part of Dhaka, Bangladesh. Eid Al-Adha, known as the ‘Feast of the Sacrifice’, is one of the most significant festivals on the Muslim calendar and lasts for four days. The holiday marks the end of the Haji Pilgrimage and serves as a day to remember the Islamic profit Ibrahim, and his willingness to sacrifice of his son, Ismail (Ishmael) as an act of submission to Allah, before Allah intervened and gave Ibrahim a lamb to slaughter in the place of his son. On this day, Muslims in countries around the world start the day with prayer and spend time with family, offer gifts and often give to charity. It is customary for Muslim families to honour Allah by sacrificing a sheep or goat and sharing the meat amongst family members. August 2017 Old Dhaka, Bangladesh © Monirul Alam / WITNESS PHOTO

Photojournalism: Bangladeshi doctor examines a baby girl born after an half-hours by C-section or caesarean delivery at the local hospital in Bangladesh on July 2017. In some cases, C-sections are planned because of medical reasons that make a vaginal birth risky. While the World Health Organization recommends a C-section rate of 10-15% of total births in the developing world, the figure is often much higher. National Institute of Population Research and Training’s Bangladesh Demographic and Health Survey 2014 said that the percentage of births delivered by C-section has been increasing over time, from 4 per cent in 2004, to 9 per cent in 2007 and to the current level of 23 per cent in 2014. © Monirul Alam / WITNESS PHOTO July 2017 Old Dhaka, Bangladesh
