Chile: survivors' camp
Tuesday, August 31, 2010
The Bosque Mar resettlement camp is home to 50 families who once lived along the shore and depended on the sea. The men on the camp are mainly fishermen and the women live from collecting seaweed called pelillo.
Families are now living in one-room government-issued shelters with communal latrines and cold-water showers.
This gallery of images by Sean Hawkey shows how ACT members and their partners work with the community on health and psychosocial projects as well as practical support for furniture and food production.
