Boat Launch

launch, originally uploaded by staarkidd.

While a group of men gathered around a newly constructed boat strategizing the most primitive ways imaginable to heave a boat into water, Boy crouched silently in the shade of a grounded boat’s bow. Boy is 12. At the time of the tsunami, he was able to cling to a tree, saving his life. When the waters subsided, he headed to high ground but soon received word that every member of his family died in the waves except for his father. Boy stayed by his father’s side until he also died. An orphan, Boy is left with nothing but the wrecked shell of his fathers boat. CAMA plans to rebuild Boys boats in fulfillment of our mandate to care for the orphans and widows.
