Lebanese Palestinian eight year old Baraa Adham Khadier, who has intellectual disability and needs the support of a special school. Her father simply wants her to have the same opportunities as other children. "My hope is that my daughter gets an education and becomes like the rest of the children. For me, I am living, but for her there is no school." In many parts of the world, where mental health services are limited, people who require mental and pyschosocial support receive the same treatment.
#InMyWorld is a campaign that seeks to expose the challenges faced by people living with mental health issues and give them the chance to be seen, heard and valued. This first phase of the project has been created in collaboration with Handicap International @handicap_uk
Today the Iraqi Kurdistan holds its independence referendum. Last friday Kurds from all over Finland gathered in Helsinki to show their support for independence. The referendum is a controversial matter as a simple "Yes" is not the only side taken. Some parties have raised concerns for the regions stability and the Kurds themselves are divided around the referedum, though not the independence in general. No matter the result, the Iraqi Kurdistan is unlikely to declare independence just yet. It is speculated that the leadership is using the referenfum to gain leverage in future negotiations with Baghdad.

The writing was on the wall in Bengali of course. They too were probably running out of something. I do feel proud of myself a lot of times, for it is never easy to shoot sideways while you are actually driving. Two local policemen.
