From a distance Hanuabada village in Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea, looks like paradise. It once was. But close up, the squalor is overwhelming. Children swim in the water next to floating soiled nappies. At the shoreline, the rubbish is metres deep. The formerly pristine white sand beach is now black mud.
Mike documented the village of Hanuabada as part of a larger project on Poverty in the Pacific between the New Zealand Herald and World Vision.
