Lunchtime at a Swaziland Orphanage

By JMPett
This is a photo I took whilst travelling through Swaziland during a 3 1/2 month trip around the world.
The orphanage at which this was taken provided basic education for children whose families have been devastated by HIV/AIDs. During the time we were here, my Dad and I helped to create a vegetable garden and build a (very bad) compost bin.
During our time there we were offered food, every single one of us agreed that it was inedible due to the blandness of it. However, I hope this photo expresses how so little can mean so much to children in such unfortunate circumstances as these.

Comments and critique much appreciated,
