Entry description: They barely have any hope for their life. No food, no places to live and no work. They hardly can think about their health. Every night of their life starts with a nightmare and ends with the beginning of strive their next day living. They are the people of Bangladesh that devastated by natural disaster like flood and cyclone. Natural disasters of Bangladesh are creating thousands of climate refugees every year and their numbers are increasing dramatically. Now it becomes the greatest challenge for modern civilization to bring hope to these climate refugees for a better life. My quest of their portraiture belongs to that vision.
