Really excited about an upcoming interview and article about my work with trans women in Lima, Peru, featured in @TheRiveter, a magazine that features work by women! ---->>>>> "Photojournalist @davillasana documents transgender women in Peru because โ€œtheyโ€™re true to who they are and they keep fighting." We're featuring Villasana's original photo essay, "A Light Inside" in the forthcoming #TRIssue6, but in tomorrow's newsletter, you can catch a sneak peak & and exclusive interview with Villanasa about what compelled her to tell this story and what we need to understand about the Peruvian transgender community.

Every time I read about a bomb blast in northeastern Nigeria (two in the past week), Iโ€™m reminded of the people I met in October who continue to live in danger and fear due to Boko Haram, whose years-long insurgency has resulted in a malnutrition crisis that Save the Children said could take the lives of 200 children a day. With very little reporting in the media about this crisis, aid organizations say itโ€™s the largest crisis that is the least funded--UNICEF has reported that 75k people will die in the coming year if aid doesnโ€™t reach them. Here, a picture of Isa, who fled to Monguno with her family after Boko Haram attacked their village, setting their house on fire and shooting her husband. Isa is now a widow raising seven children alone and struggles to make ends meet and provide food for her children. Her youngest child, pictured, is two years old and recently completed treatment for severe acute malnutrition. She said that before receiving treatment, he looked like a skeleton and that people couldn't even recognize him. Every time I look at these pictures, I think about how much more the international community could be doing. #nigeria #bokoharam #violence #insurgency #malnutrition #health #mother #child #foodinsecurity #insecurity #terrorism #unicef #savethechildren #underfunded #crisis #war #injustice

Follow along this week as I post images on @OpenSocietyFoundations of Syrian refugees who are working as migrant laborers in Turkey and as a result face many health issues due to the lack of adequate living facilities, food, clean water, medical care and sanitation. //// A portrait of 17-year-old Hanadi Ahmed, who is pregnant with her second child. She says she wants to give birth in the camp with a midwife because in the hospitals Turkish doctors treat Syrian refugees poorly and saw doctors beating them. #humanrights #health #war #syria #refugee #turkey #injustice #fairwage #osf #opensocietyfoundations #healthcare #women #pregnancy
Children play in an abandoned warehouse that now houses Syrian refugees who work in migrant labor camps for roughly $8 a day. Because most Syrian refugees are not registered with the Turkish government, most children remain out of school. /// Follow along this week as I post images on @OpenSocietyFoundations of Syrian refugees who are working as migrant laborers in Turkey and as a result face many health issues due to the lack of adequate living facilities, food, clean water, medical care and sanitation. #humanrights #health #war #syria #refugee #turkey #water #injustice #fairwage #osf #opensocietyfoundations
I am incredibly honored that @Instagram has profiled me and my work on issues affecting women around the world. It could not have been featured on a more important day. This reminds me that nothing should hinder our efforts to continue fighting for women and equality. Huge thanks to @Instagram and to @coleenjose for their support, I'll never forget it. #women #equality #thegoodfight #hearusroar #strongertogether #united ////////////////////////////////////////// Danielle Villasana (@davillasana) has her #EyesOn the resilience of women, both those experiencing the aftermath of Boko Haram violence in Nigeria and being transgender in Peru. The documentary photographer splits her time between the two countries when she is not at her home base of Istanbul. โ€œItโ€™s really important to focus not only on the negative things that can happen to a woman because sheโ€™s a woman,โ€ says Danielle, โ€œbut also her strength and her resilience to push beyond those hardships.โ€ In northeastern Nigeria, she met families, among the tens of thousands of Nigerians, suffering from acute malnutrition. In downtown Lima, she spent two and a half years documenting the challenges facing transgender women: domestic violence, stigmatization and lack of treatment for diseases including tuberculosis and HIV/AIDS. Danielle is drawn to underreported places and issues in part because there is room to add to the conversation. โ€œAs long as you care about it, then you should pursue it โ€” even if the whole entire world is focused on something else.โ€ Photo by @davillasana
Hadiza Mohammed and her 4-year-old daughter Fatima look at each other while laying on a bed in an MSF clinic that treats ICU patients suffering from severe acute malnutrition in Northeastern Nigeria. Fatima, who has been receiving treatment for two months, was given a blood transfusion due to low blood count and is still unable to eat. โ€œMy biggest problem is the fact that I am living this camp life with 10 children, and there is not enough food to go around,โ€ said Hadiza, who is an IDP from the Nigerian town of Gwoza living in the Bakassi IDP camp in Maiduguri. || Read more about how Nigerian mothers face new nightmare in wake of Boko Haram on @newshour, link in bio. #nigeria #bokoharam #malnutrition #crisis #humanrights #injustice #family #msf #maiduguri #aftermath #insurgency #priceofwar #humanitarian #aid #food #scarcity
