Khartoum, Sudan. Sudan's Abandoned Children. The babies, often born after illicit relationships, are regarded as fatally corrupt in a deeply religious society that traditionally passes the sins of the parent on to the child. The unmarried mother of a baby risks 100 lashes and is automatically rejected by her family circle. The illegitimate children are often abandoned on the street and are eaten by dogs. This picture was taken in the Maygoma orphanage.
