Working in the Communications Department of the U.S. Fund for UNICEF, I often get intimate glimpses of people’s lives all over the world. Part of my work entails researching photos of children and their families, many who live in developing countries and suffer from poverty, disease, disaster and other ills.
The images range from the horrible to the hopeful: a child succumbing quietly to fatal malnutrition, preschoolers in rapt attention as a teacher explains how to spot landmines, mothers in colorful wraps with rosy infants waiting for lifesaving vaccines.
Even among these powerful images, a few stand out as extraordinary. These are pictures not just of children, but by them.
The situation for children continues to worsen in Myanmar as thousands of children have been separated from their families, many more are living in desperate conditions in relief camps, and some are drinking water from ponds covered with dead bodies.
Below, a collects wood near the carcass of a cow killed by the cyclone, some 50 kilometres south-west of the township of Kunyangon. As bodies decompose, the water supply is further contaminated.
It’s been awhile in the making, but we’re just putting the final touches on Clay’s album of photos from his holiday visit with kids at UNICEF programs in Mexico. Everyone who donated $50 or more to Clay’s appeal for Mexico will be getting a link to a PDF of the album this week via e-mail — and signed copies for folks who were able to give $1,000 or more will be going out by postal mail shortly. Keep an eye open for yours!
