Giving Back Image of the Week
Nyumbani Children’s Home
Johnson & Johnson supports Nyumbani Children’s Home, a center that serves as a home to nearly 100 abandoned or orphaned children with HIV/AIDS. The children, ranging from infants to teenagers, receive holistic care – antiretroviral therapy, psychological, academic, and spiritual support.
The photographer uses the focus of the camera to lead the viewer around the image. The sharp focus directs the viewer to the back of the caregiver, who delicately reaches to hold the hands of a young child in her care. The older boy in the background is slightly out of focus, though he is the one facing the viewer. The focus does not obscure the joy and happiness that the child expresses as he runs toward the figures in the foreground.
