LA LIXEIRA (the dump) - the invisibles' dignity

Guido Galante, Antonio Notarangelo


Maputo, the capital city of Mozabimque, has one or may be two million inhabitants. A few neighborhoods have houses or more precisely brick shacks, some paved roads, mostly a wide range of huts without basic sanitation services, where day by day men, women and children scrape food together in slow and quiet despair-the only chance they have to survive.

In Pursuit Of Light

Amit Rai


In India around 2 million cases of cataract are reported every year. This leads to 80.7% of severe visual impairment and 63% blindness. Of these cases, 93% of blindness and 96.2% is completely avoidable. But due to illiteracy, lack of awareness, and proper medical facilities these figures have never really changed. Many government initiatives have not managed to overcome this crisis.
