Photo by @edkashi I want to thank the National Geographic Society for giving me a new grant to continue this personal project. I have been exhibiting this series on #CKDu @visapourlimage in #Perpignan this week and must give me deepest thanks and appreciation to the most important festival for photojournalism in the world for giving a wider voice to this issue. In this photo, family and friends gather for the funeral procession and burial of a former sugar cane worker who died of #ChronicKidneyDisease of unknown origin after working in the #sugarcane fields in Chichigalpa, #Nicaragua for 12 years. #visapourlimage #visapourlimage2017 #France #photojournalism #documentary #reportage #edkashi #viiphoto #CKD #CKDnT

    What is this

    The owners of this rum company are one of the richest families in the country. The corrupted government lets them do whatever they want. And, these poor people are pretty much alone in their fight. No justice at all.
