Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos
Following the spiral of violence and poverty hitting the Central American nations of Nicaragua, Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala the number of orphaned, abandoned and vulnerable children is constantly increasing. Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos™ (NPH), which in English means "Our Little Brothers and Sister", provide a permanent family and home for them. The boys and girls are raised in a loving environment, secure in the knowledge they will never be forced to leave the home, separated from their siblings, nor given up for adoption. In addition to food, clothing, shelter, medical care and a good education, the children spiritual and emotional needs are nourished, preparing them for adulthood with tools to break the cycle of poverty that once was their destiny.
This work, commissioned by NPH, participated in "Festival della Fotografia Etica" 2013.
