KENYA. Nairobi. Mother and her handicaped child surviving in the slum of Kibera. Her husband left her because he was ashamed of his handicaped son.
Kibera is Africa's next largest slum and it is located in Nairobi, Kenya. It houses one million people squeezed into less than a square mile. Most people living in Kibera have little or no access to basic necessities, such as electricity, clean water, toilet facility and sewage disposal. The combination of poor nutrition and lack of sanitation accounts for many illnesses and deaths.
