The Amharans: Ethiopia
Amhara is the historical heartland of Ethiopia. It is home to one of the oldest Christian civilisations in the world and its people, the Amharans, have provided Ethiopia with its national language, Amharic. These pictures were taken while doing a project for Gondar Eye (Ethiopia) Surgery (GEES) a charity dedicated to providing eye services to patients in rural Northern Ethiopia.
