Oxfam Hygiene Promotion Project

“After we did the drawings [in the Harper City project] an organization called Oxfam saw the paintings… and we started doing a little drawing for them, painting signboards to be [placed] in the refugee camp. It helped us too because it gave us some money for the painting.”
