19 August 2006 - New Orleans - Louisiana. Faith Figueroa. Finding Faith. Faith (2 yrs) with her mother Miriam and her sister Anfernya (5yrs) back in the 9th Ward from which they were evacuated by boat as hurricane Katrina flooded their neighbourhood almost a year ago. The neighbourhood remains desolate, with few residents. Hurricane damage for the most part unrepaired. They now have to share their home with rats. Electricity is sporadic and expensive, the telephone company has still not repaired the lines and someone tried to break into their home a few days ago whilst they were in it. Miriam stands with her children, their home in an upstairs apartment behind them. They escaped into a boat from the top steps as hurricane Katrina flooded the area. A large puddle now forms in the ruined streets, a breeding ground for ferocious mosquitos.
