Due to the recent tragedies in the Philippines, I’m considering to re-route my expedition and start there instead.

Once there, the task of illustrating drug abuse starts, but with the catch of not making [...]

In the western part of Mombasa, Kenya, lies a slum area called Mikindani. During three weeks I was stationed there to photograph and write an article for an NGO which has a school in the area. Despite the truly terrible living conditions these people have, the children never looses their spirit, and are always joyful and laughing.
