The look of witi
And this is the story of Witi and its evolution, the look that closes the exhibition and that marked me so much… I met her on the last outing we did to help children with functional diversities, 2 times a year we carry out a screening work in villages or areas of difficult access for 10 days to offer help to children with functional diversities. Witi came with her 22-year-old sister (and her two children, aged 6 years and a few months) and told us that she had speech problems and that’s why she didn’t go to school.
We found out that his arm was burned, to the point that he couldn’t stretch it by having it bent for so long, as the skin had become attached to it. They were carrying her with dirty clothes and the wounds were more than infected but what hurt me the most was that lack of affection. A lack of love that I can’t explain and an immeasurable desire to fill that void.
From that moment I knew that I would try to help her and I would come back to look for her and that’s how it was…
