During the month of Ramadan in Islam, charity is strongly emphasized. In this photograph, the women and children of the village of Aminpur in Pabna, Bangladesh, waited patiently as they were given new clothing for the holiday season. The gratitude I received after distributing as many as 50 dresses to this impoverished population was unforgettable and rewarding. The vibrant colors of this photograph remind me of the rich experience I had in my trip to Bangladesh last summer and the festive celebratory theme in the air during the month of Ramadan.
