Woman in India

Sabrina Aggarwal

New Delhi, India

“If there is one thing that unites us around the world, it's water: whether we have access to it or not. We need water not only to survive, but also to bathe and restore our sense of dignity. In this photo, this woman's face epitomizes dignity as she collects water — what she probably spends most of her day doing.”

Filipino Woman

Jennifer Parsons

Leyte Province, Philippines

“I met this woman while bringing food and supplies to the Philippines about one month after Typhoon Haiyan. After so much loss, Filipinos ‘Bangon’ (rise up) as they rebuild their lives and communities. Their smiles are a testament to their resilience and hope. Their spirit is a gift to all who meet them.”

Child in Pakistan

Abdul Qadir Memon

Islamabad, Pakistan

“This picture was taken in one of the Afghan refugee camps near Islamabad where hundreds of children are awaiting an uncertain future. They have become a largely forgotten community, pushed into poverty and living on the margins of our consciousness. Despite hardships they still smile.”
