Helping Mum in Mozambique

Helping Mum in Mozambique

Mother and daughter strolling home from the market in Maputo, Mozambique with tins of Lion Lager on their head.

It is not uncommon to see women carrying things on their head, but this is the first time I saw a little girl help her mother take the beer home, presumably for her father.

Usually the children carry water, or firewood.

Once this little girl gets better at carrying loads on her head, she’ll be able to walk upright with her hands free; like mum.
