Koh Lanta, Thailand--Chetdia Suwankadree sings to and rocks her 17 month-old son, Abdun Karim Khlongdee in their makeshift home after the Tsunami destroyed their house in the village of Hua Laem on Koh Lanta island, Thailand. At right are Yit and Hyrun Mon, 87 and 84 respectfully with whom Suwankadree shares the tent.  Hyrun uses crutches to walk and like all those who lost their bathrooms along with their homes, must go over to the Mosque across the street to shower and use the bathroom.  01/17/05 © Julia Cumes / The Image Works
