Joonia's Story. Port-au-Prince, Haiti
Feature story by Kasper Nybo Photography
During my recent work on a feature story (read more) in Haiti I wanted to document the lives of children affected by the earthquake. There are countless stories of broken limps, fights over food and salvaged building materials to be told. And then there is a more quiet story, one of orphans. Children who have lost not just their home, but their mothers, fathers and sometimes their entire family. They are alone in an unimaginable way, left in the hands of relatives and aid organizations or – in many cases – dealing with a new life alone in the streets.
This is the story of one of these children. Her name is Joonia.
These images are dedicated to Hospice St Joseph, with great thanks for their openness which made my work in Haiti possible. They are truly amazing people, and their work in the local community is fantastic. I strongly encourage you to support their work – and children like Joonia.
