North, SRI LANKA

Patha, a mother of three, was abandoned by her husband after her leg was blown off by a landmine in her garden. She had returned to her home only the day before after 12 years spent fleeing one military offensive after another. After decades of civil war, a ceasefire agreement was signed between the government and the Tamil Tiger rebels in February 2002. Despite the devastation wrought on the infrastructure of the country, and the remaining unexploded ordnance (UXO), thousands of people have begun returning to their homes.
