When people find out that I live in Ethiopia, the very next question is always, “so, what do you do there?” This is one of the things that I do…
When I decided that I wanted to use my photography (skills and passion) for good, I didn’t envisage how much it would move me to want to keep it going.
The second project (the first is here) that I photographed for Ethiopiaid Australia six months ago was a breakfast for street children in Addis Ababa. Although the breakfast is just a small part of what the donor organisation (HOPE) do for these children, it is a large step in helping them.
Here are just some of the children that are happy to have breakfast this morning…
Each time I have photographed for a cause I have felt humbled and deeply appreciative of the daily struggle that so many people in Addis Ababa and the world deal with in life.
I look forward to my next project and the people I will be fortunate to meet, and who will undoubtedly inspire me.
PS. In case you are interested to know how I am using this to directly help the people I photograph, I am printing and delivering any portraits to them.
