Fernando Moleres

Freetown, SIERRA LEONE

Mohamed Conteh with his girlfriend Famata. He shares a hut with a number of friends and there is not much space to sleep. Who ever comes last has to sleep on a bench or on the floor. There is no running water and they have to go to a communal place to pick up water for washing, cooking and rinking. At age 14 Conteh was arrested and accused of posessing marijuana. Without family to help, he would have had to serve his full sentence but a foster family came up with the 100,000 leones (EUR 25) to get him released from jail. After his release he entered a rehabilitation programme funded by Free Minor Africa, a charity which helps juveniles that have been in trouble with the law to reintegrate into society, and is now taking driving lessons to get a license. [The second part of this photographic project was made possible with funds which Fernando Moleres received from the Tim Hetherington Grant in 2012]
