Artist's Description

This child is around 8. She had just been rescued from being a sex slave to one of the militias in D.R. Congo. She was clearly traumitised and I had to photograph her in near darkness. I have hesitated all this time putting the shot up as I believe it so accurately captures her pain, I feel uncomfortable. But the story needs to be told. The pain needs to be seen, sadly. Please pray for the Rwandas, Somalias, Congos and sadly now Kenyas of this world. As long as the barbarity is repeated so will the images be. It’s not for sale. But you can still give to HEAL Africa. healafrica.org

There are tickets available for a lunch where Lyn Lusi the head of HEAL Afrcia will be talking. So far no takers.
