VIRTUAL PHOTOGRAPHY EXHIBITION
In collaboration with Marcus Perkins
Experience the magic of Bench Maji, Ethiopia through this guided exhibition and follow the story of Manyazawel, a little boy infected with schistosomiasis.
We wish to express our deep gratitude to each of the subjects in these photographs for both their hospitality and openly sharing their lives with us. We are also extremely grateful to the people and the organizations who generously assisted with this project. They include Merck, the Ethiopian Federal Ministry of Health and the local health and administrative authorities across Bench Maji.
Special thanks Marcus Perkins for capturing life in the region with sensitivity, and NALA Foundation staff; Dorin Turgeman, Asrat Meleko and Hailu Debebe.
Merck would also like to thank all global partners for their continuing efforts in the fight towards the elimination of schistosomiasis.
