This month I am lucky enough to be in Khartoum, visiting our projects for Women’s Education Partnership. This post is a tribute to Khartoum and its people as they go about their lives in the sweltering heat of May. All portraits in this blog were taken with the consent of the sitter.

Please do not reproduce any photos of the people below without written permission.

    Wonderful photos. Brought tears to my eye. Such economically deprived country but cheerful people. They deserve all the help and support they deserve. Traditionally May is very hot.

    1. Thank so much, Abdul. The Sudanese bear their challenges with such dignity. The woman selling prayer caps lost her son when he was killed trying to emigrate to Europe.
