Touch of love

Posted by
Mirjam (Kyiv, Ukraine) on 6 January 2010 in Miscellaneous and Portfolio.

There is always time for a hug

I love to see the children to play. Too many of them has a childhood without being a child and no hugs!

My husbands and I are helping children in Ukraine.

It all started when my husband and I saw wild dogs taking care of the street children.

A question came: "Does these dogs care more for the children, than people do?"
We moved to Ukraine, opened a "Friend's House" - a house with open doors for children, help children in need, underage mothers ...

Photo is a powerful instrument to tell the story. I want to learn more about it, taking pictures, getting critique, learning from others.

With love to God and the children!

Love this image. My dog started life as a street dog in Albania. Even though the dogs were often badly treated by people the younger children loved her and she loved them. The would poke her and pull at her ears and tail; one little boy even pulled her lips up to see her teeth, but she never minded.
