Where do you hurry?

Posted by
Mirjam (Kyiv, Ukraine) on 5 July 2010 in Miscellaneous and Portfolio.

The boys were reparing their old bicycles all day, yesterday. We got them from humanitarian aid, for long time ago. They created from old bicycles , spare parts- well functioning bicyckles.

I was watching the boys. They had no hurry, nowhere to hurry. I hope we adults could live like that.

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!
