Wang Bao Ying, frequently ill and over 75, cries in her home as she describes the life of her orphan grandchild Fan Lu Yang, 10, in Fanzhuang Village, Jiangsu Province, China.  The boy's father died in 2000 in a coal mining accident and his mother, affected by dementia, wandered away and disappeared a year before this picture was taken.  The boy's guardians cannot provide financial or material support for the boy and fear what will happen to him when they pass away. (image by M. Scott Brauer)
