World's backstage

I chose to do some volunteering and had an occasion to go to a hospital in the north of Benin. In just a couple days of travel i found another world: everything was different. The biggest difference, the one that has really stricken me, was the living condition of kids.I tried to document it: the endless days of the sick ones, a quick game in a moment stolen from work time, the big faith that gives them hope and strenght.

I felt like god couldn't do much for them, but men could.
