World Malaria Day, April 25, 2016

Today, April 25th is World Malaria Day, but in reality, for half the world, every day is malaria day. Statistics show us that a child dies from malaria, every minute of every day. In 2002, the same year I began my career as an NGO photographer, the United Nations Millennium Campaign began. The program was designed to [...]
