Waisenkinder in Uige - Angola
Project: Lar da Criança Feliz
On 11th of March 2002 the ONG "Lar da Crianca Feliz" was founded by 20 activists in Luanda/Angola. It has actually the target to support abandoned and orphan children in the Angolean Province of Uige. See some pictures of the children and the project in Uige:
Main project targets are:
>to give them a home by building a kindergarten for about 100 babies
>and a place for about 400 older orphan children
>render health support having some first aid places available for treatment (TBC, Aids and Malaria)
>build a school house for education of the children
>and prepare a community kitchen with a baking room to regularily supply the food for the children
>create an initiave for art, music, and dancing
>get transport capacities for the project
Uige was a heavily effected war zone and therefore many of the children suffer traumas of the war. Equipped with very small financial fonds the ONG association members try locally to develope the project "Lar da crianca feliz - place for happy children. These guys need our help. Therefore SOS is sent by ONG directora geral: Mrs. Maria de Lurdes de Assumpção Valente
Any financial help is welcome at any time

When 11/19/2006 22:07Agree Patrick. I didn't mention it but the hands clasped it a PRO from me too.
Maguire 11/19/2006 22:06Beautiful, beautiful photograph. It wouldn't be out of place in National Geographic the standard is so high. As for the discussion about the photographer's foot. Given that the child is framed by the feet of other children this is not out of place. Brilliant work. Wish I could vote several pro's.. afraid the one I do have to give will have to do. PRO
Patrick B. Parenteau 11/19/2006 22:06Staged, unstaged, cropped, uncropped, spot, no spot, sharp, unsharp, looking up, looking down - for me, none of that matters - this image has SOUL. Pro
