Wiki Loves Africa 2021 Special Collection
In this collection we would like to celebrate the collective images of the photographers that took part in a photowalk of the Laquintini Hospital in Cameroon as part of the Nos Jardins training. The images by Max MBAKOP, Happi Raphael, and Destiny Deffo, coordinated by Serieminou represent the reality, professionalism, hope and heartbreak of a working hospital. View more of the collection from Nos Jardins here. Prize sponsored by Ynternet.org.
