For the past few days, Pete has been documenting the state of public latrines in Cap Haitien. This is one photographs he took in the Shada neighborhood in Cap Haitien. When he showed it to one of the nurses running the nearby clinic, she said “This is the picture all the kids took in the photo project when they were asked to photograph something that makes them sad”.

The photo project called “Looking through their eyes” was run by our colleagues at SOIL. The photos currently available on the site were taken in the nearby city of Borgne. Below is a sample.
