“River Houses” / Ngaputaw Township, Ayeyarwady Region, Myanmar

July 2016: A row of thatch houses line the banks of Pathein River in Ngaputaw Township. The poor households, who provide the labor inputs in the vast ricefields of the delta during planting and harvesting season, turn to the river for income and food source when there is no work required in the ricefields.
