Where: Belen

Belen District is located in the Maynas Province of Peru.  The community exists in a seasonal floodplain of the Itaya River, forcing most structures to be erected on stilts as to avoid rising water. Electricity, clean water, and improved sanitation are uncommon in Belen due to high poverty and difficulties with infrastructure development. Belen is located at the red star in the map below:
