Danish photographer Jan Grarup has won UNICEF’s international photo competition with an image of a Pakistani child  receiving treatment after an October 2005 earthquake.
Said Eva Luise Köhler of UNICEF:
The UNICEF Photo of the Year 2006 is a symbol of survival. The girl’s smile is an expression of gratitude to all, who have helped the victims of nature disasters in recent years. It should encourage all of us not to forget children in need, even when they are no longer the focus of media attention.
Said Grarup of his subject, five-year-old Rahila,
Her smile amid all the grief and despair had a great impact on me. This little girl shows just how much resilience children have.
