Permafrost Melt Victim in China

A woman in Xiadawu Village, Mabi County, sits on the bed in her tent next to her old house, which was heavily damaged by permafrost melt and became inhabitable. She and her husband have no money to repair the house because they also lost their live stock. Now they live in the tent and survive thanks to social welfare and irregular employment. The entire region of the Yellow river source and its community are under heavy threat of global warming as temperatures rise, glaciers retreat and permafrost melts.
