Living in a Toxic periphery in Dhaka

A girl covers her face in front of the camera. She has breathing problem by living around these factories in Dhaka, Bangladesh, on 22 August 2016. People from the southern part of Bangladesh are the victims of climate change. The climate change results in making them to move to the capital Dhaka. These migrated people work in factories which are polluting the environment. Many factories produce smoke containing toxic chemicals which may cause breathing problem. They also release chemicals in the nearest river or pond. Migrated workers work for 24 hours a day and 15 days in a month. They hardly get chance to visit their relatives in village. Working under this circumstance they get asthma or other breathing problems. They do not have any safe protection from the gas or dust. (Photo by Mushfiqul Alam/NurPhoto via Getty Images)
