This image illustrate the demography of the camps and in particular the prominence of children and young teens. As teens grew older some went back to El Salvador to join the FMLN and the civil war. Colomancagua, Honduras, ca. 1985.
General view with very productive gardens in the background. The Salvadorans were excellent farmers as was confirmed when Meyer Brownstone worked with refugees in Nicaragua on land allocated by the Nicaraguan government. La Virtud, Honduras, ca. 1985.
This is a beautiful child with whom Meyer Brownstone played. On his next visit shortly later he tried to find the child but no own could tell me where she was until, finally, someone took pity on me and told me that the child had died of dysentery shortly after my visit. He was devastated by her death which illustrated the lack of health workers in the camps and the failure to educate the refugees in the treatment of dysentery. Colomancagua, Honduras, ca. 1985.
