A Sister’s Care

Photograph by Ali Al-Zaidi

Losing a mother is especially painful for young children, and older children may take on the bulk of the responsibility afterward, writes photographer Ali Al-Zaidi. Here, a young woman cares for an infant sibling in Ethiopia. “But still the sadness shows on the little kid’s face, because something is missing, which is the mother,” Al-Zaidi writes.
