SIEM REAP, CAMBODIA. Residents of the community start to move their homes before the water of the lake will cover the entire village. Living under extreme poverty, the community moves their entire shelter wood by wood, metal by metal, as they cannot afford to buy new material for their new location.   Almost 200 people live in a community on the shore of the Tonle Sap Lake, just few kilometers away from the city of Siem Reap, home to the world famous temples of Angkor. With the arrival of the wet season, the community is forced to move their homes up to the Phnom Krom Mountain where the water of the Tonle Sap Lake will not rise and cover their entire village.
