In Central African Republic, conflict has affected more than 2.8 million people, many of whom need access to water, sanitation, food and protection. More than 436,000 of those people are living as Internally Displaced People – unable to stay in their homes, so seeking shelter elsewhere in the country. In Yaloke World Vision has opened up a space for children to play, stay safe and try to forget about the fighting they’ve left behind. One World Vision worker at the Child Friendly Space said: “This is the only safe place that they can play in Yaloke…so sometimes they come from very far.” Another added: “Children who come from groups who have been fighting play together here. The problem is never with children, it’s with adults.”
I am an incorrigible voyeur... For the past 25 years, I have been looking at things, taking photos or making films. I am a nomad (my storage facility's Manager loves me) who produced natural history documentaries around the world and few animation TV series along the way... I have the patience and resilience of a wildlife producer but I can be bored really easily too... Always make sure that you engage with me with passion and conviction in order to get the best of me. I was born French but became an Aussie by choice and love. I have a strong and loud opinion about things but I try to be a committed listener and thrive to always get the best outcome for all. I have the privilege to work at World Vision International as Regional Communications Director for West Africa. I love my work and the people who are making a difference everyday and everywhere. Be in touch.
