Here’s a picture of a little boy hugging is younger sister. Isn’t it heart-wrenching?
Well basically, the photo has gone viral as a picture taken after the unfortunate Nepal earthquake. But actually, it’s a picture taken by a man in Vietnam. This picture had been going around on various social media platforms with most people thinking it was from the Nepal earthquake; however, the real photographer of the picture came out to speak up about his right over the picture and erase people’s misconceptions.
This is my photo about two Vietnamese Hmong ethnic children taken in 2007 in Ha Giang province, it’s not about Nepal pic.twitter.com/yq04TsH6CF
