The heartbreak of Daru


These are pictures of  the forgotten backwater of Daru, Western province, which has been left to rot by the PNG government.
Need I say more?
Four years ago, I went to Daru to bury my late wife, Hula, and since then, nothing has changed in this 'Wild West' town of Daru.
For better or worse?
Let these pictures by DAVID WILLIAMS do the talking!
