These are people we met in passing. IDPs on the side of the trail, basically hanging out at what was once a store. In this picture Gideon is sharing a picture he took of them on his digital camera. I often felt that we could bring little to the situation, to these people who have lost most everything except dignity. In the end I decide for myself that it's worth it enough for moments like this. You share what you have at the moment. You care enough to take a picture. You work towards goals that are likely to be unfulfilled in our lifetime. And on the way you make friends.

This picture was taken in Nalico (forgive the spelling) in Mon Township. I would say one of the most desperate places I have ever been. Besides children it's the elderly who bear the brunt of war. But despite the situation she was extremely kind and less distressed than this picture seems.
