December Views – A Sleeping Mom and Child

cancer hospital, children's ward, Sri Lanka

This photograph was taken at the Cancer Hospital, the children’s ward. In each room, there are typically around 15-20 patients. There’s nowhere for the mom’s to sleep, so like this mom, they tend to sleep near their children, perhaps with their heads on the bed, or perhaps they sleep on the floor.
