Min Kush, KYRGYZSTAN

Joldosh Kalenov prays at the graves of three family members who have died of cancer, which he believes is due to radioactive dumping. During the 1960s and 70s, Min-Kush was a prosperous city living off the wealth of uranium mining. It is now an impoverished and semi-deserted village of 2,500 people (down from a population of 20,000) polluted by uranium waste.
