Have a merry one!

The German NGO Welthungerhilfe has chosen a picture I took in India for this year’s christmas card. I would love to tell you that this family is as merry as it seems here, but while we were joking with the adults, the children’s faces tell the real story. Like most inhabitats of the coastal Sundarbans area, this family is terrified by the increasingly strong cyclones that hit their homes. The last one killed thousands in their area, turned many of their neighbors into climate refugees and left this family traumatized. I often think about them and hope they are well.

Furthermore Welthungerhilfe’s India office has published a calender with my photos – thanks, folks!
