I was lucky enough to spend February in Sri Lanka working with the Fun For Life team. Fun For Life is a charity organisation who work in orphanages of countries effected by war. FunForLife Homepage
The team has no political motives and the objective is purely to give the children a chance to laugh, sing, dance and play – just be kids again for while and forget what they’ve been through. So with a dancer, a musician and a puppeteer, we spent an amazing time with these kids.
The images selected here are in random order, and mainly from the Anbu Illam Girl’s Orphanage in Trincomalee, NE Sri Lanka.
