Mum Beatrice smiles while holding her little baby Sipha

Mum Beatrice smiles while holding her little baby Sipha in Sange, Democratic Republic of Congo. It’s acclaimed photographer Rankin’s second visit to this town, and he’s on a mission to capture images of love in a land torn by conflict.

Beyond the studio backdrop is a country which is one of the toughest places on earth to call home. Since 1998, five million people have died as a result of conflict here, most by the malnutrition and disease it has caused.

The scale of suffering here is immense. Hundreds of thousands of homes have been destroyed. Rape is widespread. 

Amid the unspeakable violence, there is true kindness. Beatrice is among the 10 people taken in by Sange resident Annie (45). “I accepted them because I think it is good to help other people,” Annie explains. “It is our friends; tomorrow it could be us.” It’s a story repeated thousands of times across DRC, a place where most people live in extreme poverty, yet it is extreme generosity that shines through.

Despite difficulties at home, our supporters across the island of Ireland share this incredible spirit of generosity. Your support helped us to provide vital water and sanitation in Sange, just one of many places touched by your kindness.
