Children in Nyarugusu camp

I thought we would be drowned by the wave of children that surged towards us!

This was the only camp we visited with a "negative" atmosphere - not hostile, but heavy, sad, oppressive ....

    This is great- we can only wonder about their lives before and after this moment- but this instant is captured. A lovely picture- and at least you can see they enjoyed being photographed!

    Beautifully expressive faces.... I think you can see the pain in their eyes though, which is sad

    Sophoni - I am so glad that things turned around for you! Good luck for your future!

    Were you in Nyarugusu or in Nduta camp?
  • slide2002 5y

    i was in nduta camp ................hey tht my phone number if u want u can call me 319 447 0729
    thank u so much
  • Anduze traveller 5y

    I thought you must have been - there was a very dynamic NGO supporting Nduta. I found the Twa potters such lovely people, too. I'm glad you'd found a friend among them. The old man was a lovely character, too!

    I'm the other side of the world from you, so won't be making a phone call to you! But I do wish you the very best in carving out a new life in the US. I wish you good friends, and good opportunities that you can grasp, and support so that you can learn to leave the tough times behind, without bitterness & hatred. They were a step on your way to where you are now - they're no longer the centre of your life, unless you make them so (it it sounds as though you have decided to move forward constructively!)

    je pense qu'il est agréable de voir la souffrance des autres personne de loin,mais si c'était l'un de vos frères ou fils qui soufrait ainsi?
    que feriez- vous?
  • Anduze traveller 4y

    Maenda1, - agréable? Je ne pense pas - sauf si on ne fait aucune attention au titre & au commentaire .... ces enfants sont visiblement pas des gamins détendus et heureux ... bien que des flickerites qui étaient dans ce camp disent parfois que le camp les manque ... étonnant.
    Je ferais ce que je fais déjà (sauf peut-être plus intensivement): essayer d'apporter mon grain de sable afin de faire changer les choses
