Here in Yumbe Uganda with a stellar NG Photocamp team working with young people from South Sudan living in the Bidibidi settlement. Gloria Yangi takes a break in the church that will soon fill with people to see the student show produced after a week of intense learning about Photography. @ngphotocamp @insidenatgeo #Uganda #PhotoCamp #Bidibidi #refugees
Photo by @ljohnphoto. Cannabis is a lifesaver for this family. Mom, Shannan and her sons, Joseph, 9, and Oliver, 7, have each been helped by the plant as true medicine used in combination with mainstream medicine. It is a cancer / pain fighting ally for Shannan, a calming medicine for Joseph who is on the autistic spectrum and fights severe anxieties, and Oliver who uses the oil to control seizures and shrink the multiple malignant tumors that cause them. @natgeo @thephotosociety #cannabis #cannabisismedicine #teamsuperbean #joeysalphabetsoup
Maddie is 5 years old. As with most children with Zellweger Syndrome, she was not supposed to see her second birthday. Maddie’s parents are vocal advocates for Cannabis as Medicine in many forms. It has kept their daughter pain free and in their lives. Maddie is receiving a massage with cannabis infused oil. @natgeo @thephotosociety #cannabis #madelineswholeplantjourney
How can it be that yet another person has killed dozens of innocent people and we are STILL NOT IN THE STREETS PROTESTING? Are we numb? Are we satisfied with flowers and candles and selfies? Are we locked in an abusive relationship-constantly going back for more violence because we don't believe we deserve personal safety and respect? What will it take to move us ALL to action? @ljohnphoto on assignment for @natgeo @thephotosociety #lasvegas
Was recently on assignment with @melburford when a brave young person gave us a copy of The Cambodia Daily. It was precious because it was the last. The government had just shut it down silencing the only independent voice in the country. This is a reminder of how we must all fight for a free, balanced press in every possible way.
These are the women of WORTH. Here in Myanmar working with women whose lives have been improved by PACT and their special layered approach to helping women imagine and sustain their health, business and family lives from agriculture to micro-loans to caring for children and elders.

Tuberculosis is a scourge—a person dies of TB in the world every 20 seconds.Tuberculosis depletes its victims physically, economically and can make them outcasts in their families and communities. Here in Cambodia, for @rippleeffectimages, documenting Operation ASHA and the women healthcare workers who carry life saving medications, by motor scooter and boat, door to door, hand to hand—in villages all over the country. Channy Chak braves muddy roads on her mission for Operation ASHA. #tuberculosis #operationASHA #Cambodia @rippleeffectimages
