Passando a Macedonia is a humanitarian project that aims to provide help to poor communities that live in the area of the Amazon river when it passes near the city of Manaus (Brazil).

I had the honour to participate in this mission in 2016 when I was in Brazil to meet my parents in law.

Speaking with the ideators of the project, emerged that since the beginning of the project 7 years before, they have always tried to find a good way to promote it, recruit new volunteers, and gather resources.

As I was armed with my camera and my phone, I thought that I could have taken pictures to create a story, and then put this story into a comic book that they could have distributed to promote the project.

For everybody that is interested in the project (and can read Portuguese), here is the full PDF in Portuguese here the PDF in English.

This has been one if not the very best experience of my life.
