Bara Island, Khulna Division, BANGLADESH

46 year old Abdul Hamid dismantles his house on Bara Island that sits on the side of the island's primary canal, with help from his two young twins. "It is not possible to live here anymore. The canal is getting closer and closer, and the grounds around our house are disappearing. We will move our house further into the island, even though there is a lot of water there as well" he says. The sea in the Bay of Bengal is rising, affecting the hundreds of thousands of villagers living on the low islands in the south.
