Baby Shrimp

Chars are large sandbank islands created from silt deposit caused by important and ongoing river erosion. They are continuously being extended and reduced in size by the waters of Bangladesh's large rivers. About one million people live on chars and they are among the poorest and most vulnerable people in the country. Many are fully depending on food aid during the flood season lasting about six months and having nowhere else to go.
