Rural elderly living on the poverty line in northeast Thailand

Buriram, Thailand. 11th June 2013 -- A Thai grandmother sits in a rudimentary string hammock as she waits for her simple food to cook over a wood and charcoal fire in a village in the heart of Thailand's northeastern rice-growing region. -- Most of those Thais living either in poverty or close to it reside in the rural areas and work in agriculture. Often left to care for grandchildren, many live in rudimentary wooden houses, use rainwater for drinking and prepare food over open fires.
