Putting photography to good use

I sometimes get questions about what this “journalistic pursuits in the public interest” business means exactly. Well, this is an example: The people of the Dutch “Help Syria Through the Winter” campaign asked me if they could use the photos I took when I followed their mission to Syria for a radio documentary and US magazine Newsmax.

Unlike many other NGO’s, this particular campaign is entirely run by volunteers. Nobody gets paid. So of course I was happy to oblige, to do whatever I can to help. Here are some results; their Facebook page, a banner that they use as background in a TV studio, and a flyer to announce a medical convoy with donated ambulances.
