Operation Orphan

'They have no one to tell them that monsters aren`t real.' Remember when you were a kid you were afraid of darkness? Parents are usually there for us to reassure and comfort us when we are scared. Unfortunately, orphanage kids have no one to truly support them when they are most frightened. So, we took the challenge to point out the issue most orphans go through very frequently - night terror.
Client: Operation Orphan
Issue: Caretakers at orphanages can not fully supervise children throughout the night hours.
Message: YOU can be the one to tell them that monsters aren`t real.

We provided orphans with cameras so they could capture their day-to-day experiences via photos and videos.
