    Climate Change in Kenya

    As a result of climate change, many regions that already suffer from high rates of hunger and food insecurity are predicted to experience the greatest declines in food production. In drought stricken regions like Kenya (pictures), many cattle farmers have already lost their animals, their livelihoods, and their sources of food and income. Food prices in the area, meanwhile have skyrocketed.

Oxfam America is an international relief and development organization that creates lasting solution to poverty, hunger, and social injustice.

    Eta as “Sister Tone” by Kol Idromeno (Image courtesy of Soela Zani)

    Brentano, Elisabeth, et al. “Photographer Recreates Famous Paintings With Children With Down Syndrome.” The Mighty, Mighty Proud Media, 10 Nov. 2015, themighty.com/2015/11/photographer-recreates-famous-paintings-with-children-with-down-syndrome/ This article is written about a photographer who recreates famous paintings with children models who are Down Syndrome. This is not the first time a photographer or a company has used children with intellectual disabilities but this is my (Cassie Morla) first time seeing someone take it back into a time where people with DS or any disability were treated horrible on a bigger scale. This is important because there is no record (to my knowledge) of anything like this in which an original painting or photography from the past featured a child or an adult that was classified as “different.” A huge aspect of this is mainly because those whom were on the spectrum of any kind were put into mental institutions where they were starved, sleeping on the floors in cramped rooms, as well as just being ignored and or beaten. It is critical that people be aware that the circumstances that they were in weren’t correct as well as that theses people are humans and deserve the right to basic needs in which the past denied them.

  • The Disappeared

    The Disappeared

    This infamous image is a wall of “The Disappeared”. It is where many go to put images of their loved ones who have been abducted. Many have never heard from them again, nor will they probably ever again. The purpose of the wall serves more as a protest to the government and a reminder for the horrors the society has endured.

    White Van Abduction

    “White Van Abductions” are characteristic of the Sri Lankan government; this image was captured during a protest when many activists were abducted and never seen from again. Their whereabouts remains unknown and unreported by the government. It is a rare photograph and one of the few ever documented of the many enforced disappearances.
