Hossam's portrait is part of my "Innocents Project." ANERA, American Near East Refugee Assistance, a non-political organization in Washington D.C. helps families like Hossam's by providing shelter, food, clothing, safe water, distribution of donated Tom's shoes, medical supplies, and much, much more. Please consider making a donation to ANERA.org in honor of someone special, or just because.
P.S. Perhaps you have noticed that just about every child in my portraits has dark circles under their eyes. I do not exaggerate the circles, but feel like I must include them. The children often sleep on cement flooring with a blanket cushion in one "room" of the refugee camp containing their entire family. No wonder.
