David Walega Completes UNICEF Assignment in Burundi


Seattle-based photographer David Walega has completed a two-month assignment for UNICEF in the African country of Burundi. Walega’s images focus on the shelters and hospitals in the war-torn region and their efforts to protect children from the ongoing civil war. The images will be on display at UNICEF headquarters.
Prior to leaving Africa, Walega collaborated with Seattle journalist Christopher Dalkos on a photo essay examining Lambert House, a drop-in shelter for gay youth in Seattle. The piece was published in the June issue of The Advocate.
