Zambia is a rugged country in southern Africa. Roughly 60% of the population lives in poverty to the degree that a full 40% of children are developmentally stunted. High HIV rates further stresses the country, with 1.5 million children orphaned as a result. The combination of poor healthcare, disease, and lack of food has resulted in a life expectancy of only 37.5 years. Krispen, a creative local artist in Zambia, uses reused paper packaging from local stores, recycled wire, and glue to create unique folksy villager scenes and nativity sets.
