Survival Mode For 6 Years

Here families live in tents. These temporary shelters were distributed after the 2010 earthquake and most families have adapted them into the makeshift shelter they live in today.

'When it rains the whole bed is completely soaked. During the day you can go and stand under a tree but you can't sit here. We live here anyways because we don't have another possibility. It's not that we want to live here. It's not that we're fine. We don't have a choice.'
