A parent, a home, a leg — former child soldiers of the LRA tell ‘what I lost’ during years of captivity
May 20, 2015

Through portraits, these men, women and children are presented. Behind them is a wall with a list of all the things they lost during their years of captivity and, more important, a list of their hopes, their plans for the future. In some cases, these future plans are already being met; in other cases they are difficult to meet. But they maintain the hope, a hope that keeps them alive after their return from captivity in the worst conditions and eager to continue fighting every day to regain some of the past and build a future — a future where peace is the first priority, a peace that is built with the hope of these ex-child soldiers, peace and hope that they represent with their lives and their future.

Holding out the hat for Syria
March 31, 2015

Four years since the crisis began, aid organizations are struggling to drum up funds for suffering Syrians. The international NGO World Vision, which works with the U.N.-coordinated aid operation, is just one of the organizations that has struggled to sell the crisis to donors: It has raised $2.7 million dollars in private donations for the Syria crisis over the course of four years — less than half of the $5.9 million it raised in the first week after the 2010 Haiti earthquake.

Clean water changes everything
March 22, 2015

That’s significantly higher than the 30–50 percent of wells typically still operational years after their installation, and World Vision says the sustainability is partly due to the community involvement they emphasize.
