Festo

My man Festo who lives in the Naguru slum of Kampala, Uganda. Like my son Billy, he's 9 years old and is in a class of nearly all girls but unlike Billy he lives in extreme poverty, has no father, is small and malnourished and unable to see his 3 younger siblings who live miles away with his grandmother because his mother cannot afford to keep them. He helped carry my gear and keep his mates in order while I was there on a shoot last year. I now help out by sending a few quid every month to help pay for his education and give him a little bit more of a chance in his difficult life.
