My best friend in the camps.

This little boy came running over to me as soon as he saw me. He was the happiest, most energetic person I have met in all my travels in Kitgum.

He lives in an IDP camp. In this picture he is holding tightly in his palm a Canadian penny that I gave him.

My mum had asked me to leave something in Africa of Canada as she has never been and this was her request to me.

I had been looking for a place to put it and when I met this little guy, the decision was clear.

The unfortunate reality is that most of the youngest kids in this particular village don't go to school because there is currently no primary school in the village.
