"People in Burma after Cyclone" next >>

Photo Report of Yu-Kyung Lee from Rangoon, Burma (Myanmar), Juli 2008
One Burmese man in Kyauktan, outskirts of Rangoon, is repairing his neighbor’s house which was destroyed by Cyclone Nargis on May 3rd. He, himself is one of 2.4 millions (as the UN estimates) of victims by Nargis as well. However, it has been common that the majority poor (extremely) have been employed by their (relatively) ‘rich’ neighbor for about 2500 kyat (about 2 USD), while their homes have remained destroyed or little repaired. As they cannot afford repairing their own, they use some debris from devastated area, otherwise pick up some palm tree or bamboo.
