Cameroon: Laura Foradori - I had six babies named after me
Cameroon: Laura Foradori
"I am holding one of my namesakes, Baby Laura. During my stay in Cameroon, I had six babies named after me: five Lauras and one Lawrence.

"These women are preparing food for a large death celebration. They spend the whole day cooking for around 100 to 200 people who will arrive in the evening for the all-night occasion.
