14 years old.
Buba came to St. Bartholomew’s Orphanage with her brother and sister. Her father died during the civil war in Sudan, and her mother abandoned them so that she could remarry another man. Buba and her siblings lived with their grandmother until she admitted them to the orphanage because she was no longer able to provide for them. Buba loves to sing and play games. She also loves to help cook and clean.
Buba dreams of being a teacher one day.
Since 2012, our team has grieved the loss of Buba, who passed suddenly due to a lack of medical access. We are honored to have known her and will continue to celebrate her joyful life and perspective, which she shared with us through her photographs.
Any purchase of a print from Buba's collection will fund medical and lifeline supplies for the children in her community.
