Bududa VIII

Posted by
Thomas (Kampala, Uganda) on 22 August 2011 in People & Portrait and Portfolio.

On the 1st March 2010, more than 300 people were killed in the mountainous region of Bududa by landslides covering 3 villages. Bududa, situated near Mount Elgon, is approximately 275km east of Kampala, the capital city of Uganda.
These images are taken from either the red cross displacement camp that was set up, or in a near by school that took in orphaned children from the disaster.

Nice shot and thank you for the explanation ! It has a deeper meaning when one knows they are all survivors...
