I have dedicated a significant part of my life to photojournalism and documentary photography. You can see some of my work published on CNN and other photoblogs. This fact made me...
When I visited Guinea-Bissau with the Portuguese ONGD "Mundo a Sorrir" on May this year, I was introduced to a world of parentless children. In this country many women die giving birth due to bad health conditions and the lack of hospitals. Many children find shelter in Orphanage Houses, like Casa Emanuel, you can see in this set of photographs. I talked with some of the older girls and they have the same dreams of the european girls. Have an education and accomplish professional skills that make them succeed in this world is a common desire. Some added that they would like to have the chance to help their country grow with a better orientation. It broke my heart think they live in one of the poorest and least developed countries of the world and that these dreams are difficult to achieve for most of them. While its leaders are leading their country astray, children miss the comfort of a home, the guidance of the progenitors, and the opportunities they deserve and are entitled to. There is hope and help from international organizations that still care for the health and education of the younger generation.
