16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People
A Doting Father

Sitting outside their home in a small village near Namungalwe, Uganda, this father comforts his young daughter. She is unsure about strangers, and even more so, those with large cameras, a sight she is unfamiliar with. I was interviewing this family about the benefits their village has received from working with public health NGO's, which they say has greatly impacted their lives.
