In 2014, I started to photograph for the renowned Swiss Ruedi Lüthy Foundation, which provides a clinic for people with HIV and Aids in Harare, the capital of Zimbabwe.
Thanks to the SKY project, young people in Ethiopia learn professional skills in a three-month training programme. After that they can find a job or start their own business more easily. I visited this project on behalf of the Swiss development organisation Helvetas in 2017.
Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières MSF.
For Doctors without Borders I visited the Rohingya refugee camp in Bangladesh, the world's largest refugee camp.
In the northernmost part of Laos, next to the border with China, tea grows on centuries old trees and not, as is usal, on bushes. I visited the tea farmers in Phongsaly for Helvetas.
Incited by radical American evangelists, political leaders in Uganda intended to introduce the death penalty for homosexuality. This was only prevented thanks to international pressure. But still, homosexuality is illegal in Uganda, like in many other African countries. The law is exceptionally harsh: Men and women who get caught in a homosexual act face up to 20 years in jail. Related parties and landlords who don’t denounce known LGBTI persons to the government are sentenced to seven years in prison. I travelled to Uganda on behalf of the foundation Rainbow Support Network.Office: Patrick Rohr Kommunikation GmbH
