Humans of New York now in Lagos — and the stories are amazing

There are a few social media accounts that show the diversity of human stories, experiences and perspective like Humans of New York (HONY), a photography project started in 2010 by Brandon Stanton.
Deploying the power of visual storytelling, Humans of New York has been to over 20 countries, documenting the lives and stories of strangers and, in so doing, reaching well over eight million people.
Recently, Humans of New York stopped over at Cairo, Egypt where it shared a number of stories from the North African country.
The project has now landed in Lagos and has so far shared insightful/inspiring stories and photographs of people in the city – including one featuring Temie Giwa, founder of the blood delivery company, Life Bank, and the road hawker who fed inmates in a prison vehicle while in traffic.
