Take a peek at Helga’s twin help

TWICE the nappies, twice the bottles and double the trouble.

Having twins can strain on any new parents, both emotionally and financially.

For a family living in poverty, imagining a bright future for their twins can seem impossible.

That is where Helga Dalla hopes to step in.

The award-winning Buddina photojournalist has dedicated the past five years to capturing the unique relationship between twins, resulting in three volumes of her series A World of Twins.

She has travelled around Australia to hear their stories, learning about what makes twins and their families tick.

"I see everyday the unique relationship these families have," Ms Dalla said.

"Raising children in itself can be challenging, but if you double or triple that, it can be very daunting."

It was this knowledge that led to Ms Dalla developing a website dedicated to twins.

Aworldoftwins.com will be an online community for twins and families with twins to connect through forums and podcasts.

The website aims to change the lives of impoverished twins living in African countries, through a business partnership with Compassion Australia, which sponsors children in poverty.
