The refugees of San Lorenzo, Ecuador

My Scholarship entry - A 'place' I have visited

A large portion of the refugees in San Lorenzo live near the mangroves in stilt houses. As the tides rise, the floor beneath the houses are cleaned of debris and waste. The wooden boards that lead to and between the houses test ones balance, especially after heavy rain. Pictured here, a young boy is helped up by his siblings after falling from the house where he lives.
