Rural elderly living on the poverty line in northeast Thailand

Rural elderly living on the poverty line in northeast Thailand

Buriram, Thailand. 11th June 2013 -- A rudimentary home with corrugated iron roof and walls provides shelter for a family of six children and their parents in a village in northeastern Thailand. Rainwater is collected for drinking and food cooked on an open fire of wood and charcoal. -- 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.
