Below are portraits of children with FASD for one of the first campaigns the Witte Bos foundation did for the FAS-project.
These portraits are published as well in the book Children with FASD – Kinder mit FASD.
This is Tineke. Tineke spent a large part of her life in psychiatric institutions. She only knows for a few years now that she has FAS. With this new insight, things are getting better now and she lives at home on a beautiful farm with many animals.
The FAS-project started as a journalistic initiative to raise awareness for FAS, but eventually developed into a big multimedia awareness campaign, showing the dangerous consequences of alcohol consumption during pregnancy.
“FAS is the storm in your head. FAS is not having control of your life.
FAS is being different. FAS lasts a lifetime.”
