Mama and her house

Aitutaki, 12th Feb 2010, Mama Kura Pakoti sits in front of what’s left of her house after Cyclone Pat hit Aitutaki.

She sat inside this house sheltering with her husband Nobel Pakoti while the cyclone hit in the early hours of the morning, tearing her 3 month old roof apart and losing most of her personal belongings.
