Karchung Weeps

Category: Travel Portraits


Photo and caption by Daniel Byers

A Mustangi woman weeps and prays in her home. She has lost both her husband and her eyesight to illness, and is unable to care for her goats. Happily, a medical eyecare mission was able to restore her sight via cataract surgery only a few days after this photo was taken.

Location: Lo Manthang, Nepal
