La Oroya, PERU

Onofre and his 15 year old daughter, Oshim, who has lead poisoning. A huge proportion of La Oroya's 30,000 inhabitants suffer from helth problems caused by pollution from the Doe Run metallurgical complex. The environmental health organisation Blacksmith Institute listed La Oroya as one of the World's Worst Polluted Places, because of pollution generated at the poly-metallic smelting plant. The site was built as a copper smelting plant in 1922.
