Photographer's Note

This picture is actually in Honduras in the state of Nuevo Paraiso, which is near the border with Nicaragua. There is no category for Honduras... so here we are.
This is a child from a settlement called "Nuevo Esperanza" which means, "New Hope". The settlement is made up of 200 families that were displaced during Hurricane Mitch in 1998. Thousands died and Honduras was setback decades.
Nuevo Esperanza is one of several projects made possible by Sister Rosa Maria Leggoll. Many affectionately know her as "The Mother Theresa of Honduras".
With the help of the Sister's humanitarian group, Sociedad Amigos de los Ninos, the 200 families were transplanted from the capital to the country where they built their community with their bare hands.
