In this April 20, 2015 photo, Milagros Chumbe washes clothes inside her flooded home in Belen, an Amazon community nicknamed “Venice of the Jungle,” in Iquitos, Peru. Sixteen members from three different families live at the home, currently flooded by the rising of the Itaya river. During the rainy season, mothers keep a close eye on toddlers just learning how to walk to ensure they don’t fall in the water, and the local press reports on one or two children drowning each year.
