Baba Farid Center

A disabled child receives a massage at the Baba Farid Center for Special Children in Faridkot, India. The center provides therapeutic care to the growing number of children in Punjab that are being born with birth defects and disabilities. This rise is believed to be linked to increased exposure to uranium from coal-fired power station’s fly ash waste and heavy metals that have accumulated in the soil and water after decades of excessive pesticide use in the region. @sean_gallagher_photo this week on @burndiary.  This is part of a new body of work ‘Toxic Development: Pollution in India’, sponsored by the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting
