Children of Matamoros

While wondering the streets with our new friend, Larry, at Casa Bugambilia, in Matamoros, we traveled across some children.  I spent some time talking with them, and taking pictures of them, trying to make them laugh and smile.  We were told the area where they live used to be a dump.  The streets are covered with trash, and due to raw sewage running through the city, there are many issues of autism, as well as other health problems in the sweet people that live there.  Although, their surroundings are disheartening, their hearts seem full.  I plan to return to Casa Bugambilia and capture the clinic and surrounding work they do for the people there.  It’s possibly the warmest place I’ve seen, combined with the most selfless people I’ve ever met.  Here’s a few of the children we met, and a shot in the street that captures the surroundings.
