Iina caught me taking the photo of a little girl in Changara when we were there in November last year to film for a Finnish fundraising event.
I was a facilitator, translator and reporter at once, and had a very fruitful time with the team and the people we met. The mother was one of the more interesting personalities I have met on my way, with a contagious laughter and very strong presence, she was proud of her children, proud of her house, very sharp minded and not even a tiny bit shy. An absolutely fantastic woman.
The gala and videos were aired on Finnish TV yesterday, I will share them with you if UNICEF Finland gives me the permission to do so.
