Photo and caption by Aidan Ware

This photo was taken when I was invited to a pastor's house in Harbu Chulule, Ethiopia. The paster was not in but his wife and family friends insisted on making me coffee. The young girl's mother was a seamstress (a common trade in a rural village) and earned a living from mending other people's clothing. She had stepped out of the house to fetch the coffee and immediately her daughter ran up from the back room and started crying. Mother's carry their children everywhere they go. A mother's bond to her children here in Ethiopia is stronger than any western civilization I have witnessed.

Location: Harbu Chulule, Ethiopia
