This is part of my strong women series.
Taken in Rwanda, for me the strength is in the focus of the mother as others look elsewhere.
She is giving her last drops of milk to her child, and thinking of the next meal.
I like her strength.

G’day all, my name is Melinda but my mates call me Mel, so feel free. I live by the beach in Elwood, Victoria, Australia. I contribute to a few charities as a Photojournalist, namely HEAL Africa in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Any of my Africa stuff’s profits go to them. So far the sales have bought 7 operations and heaps more so thanks for everyone’s support. I also take a mean beach shot (well try to).
