When you walk through Rosa’s neighborhood in Barranquilla, Colombia the ground gives a little bit beneath your feet. It’s unsteady. It’s because the entire town is built on a landfill that used to be a mangrove. And it’s built on a landfill without drainage.

When the heavy rains come, there is no where for the water to go so it rises up, flooding the houses that have been painstakingly pieced together. This happens so frequently that Rosa has raised the floor of her home three times trying to combat future damage.
