Lost In Waves

Effects of Climate Change are very visual in a country like Bangladesh, which is surrounded by rivers. Every year more and more lands get dissolves into water due to rapid river erosion. The areas and people around Padma river suffer the most. Lots of people lost their homes, lands and their livelihood. These people left with nothing more to loose and no where to go. So with no roof upon their heads and uncertainty, often they try to migrate towards the cities but the best they can manage is creating roadside slums to sleep at night and low income odd jobs to pass their day but in many cases they cannot manage none of it.
