G.M.B. Akash

Hatibandha Upazila, BANGLADESH

14 year old Sabina Yasmin harvests tobacco leaves in the Dawabari river bed area. 'Chars' such as this - islands that are periodically submerged by the country's mighty rivers - are home to over five million people in Bangladesh. Life for the char dwellers is hazardous and uncertain. Flooding is common, as is loss of land and erosion, making it a struggle to grow enough food, and meaning families often need to relocate.
