<b>This wasn't a pleasure trip. I went a few months ago with the people of Americares to help the people of this beautiful place. I acted as a volunteer photographer and it was one of the best assignments I have ever had.

Please view the Americares home page and see what you can do to help! <a href="http://www.americares.org/Home.asp">www.americares.org</a>

Or call 1-800-486-help

    Thank you for sharing this most humbling experience with us. I am touched by your narrative and photos.....unfortunately, the poor will always get poorer.
