Robin Hammond

Port Harcourt, Niger Delta, NIGERIA

31 year old Endurance sits between the pews of a church. For six months he has been in the care of Reverend Tambari and sleeps in his church. Although the oil industry has brought billions of dollars into the Nigerian economy, social services remain virtually non-existent and provision for the treatment of people's mental health is neglected by the state. Those who are ill are considered cursed, their illness attributed to malignant spirits by the general population. As a result people with mental health issues are often abandoned or mistreated.
