Ruth and Isaac live in a slum in Lusaka, Zambia. Isaac (behind) is Ruth's best friend. They play together, go to school together and he protects her when needed. Albino children in Africa are often targeted because witch doctors say their bodies can cure diseases.Side note: With selling this photograph I am raising money for Ruth, to protect her against the sun during her childhood, so the chance is higher that she has a skin-cancer-free future.
