Pic of the day: the closest thing to a family home

For thousands of people in Eastern Myanmar, the family home environment is without walls, deep in the jungle where they hide from the Burma Army. Shelters like these just about keep children protected from the insects on the ground and the pouring rains from above, but provide little consolation for the years of oppression keeping them forever homeless.
