'Burberry Girl' HEAL Africa Hospital, Eastern Democratic Republic of Congo

Melinda Kerr

Melbourne, Australia

Artist's Description

A wierd contradiction happens in Africa. People are so very poor, the only clothes they can get are those given away by charity or sold for a pittance by second hand dealers. Such organisations or traders get their clothes ultimately from the charity bins you and I donate to. Therefore people living in abject poverty wear outfits with brand names emblazoned on them such as: Timberland, Nike or Ralph Lauren. The same names people in the west pay a lot for. Ironic? Yes. Amusing? Yes a little. I came across this beautiful young girl in the ruins of broken lava, homelessness and chaos. She was wearing a light blue dress and carrying a burberry hand bag. Classic.

And there’s a trucker cap.
Hey, doin’ good needn’t mean you can’t be cool at the same time. CLICK HERE FOR THE HAT!
