Child Plays in a Tannery
A child jumps on the waste products that are used to make poultry feed as she plays in a tannery at Hazaribagh area. For decades, pollution from tanneries at the main industrial site in Dhaka poured into the Buriganga River, wiping out aquatic life and forcing the city to rely heavily on groundwater. In 2017, they were forced to move their factories to the newly built Tannery Industrial Estate in Savar.

طفل يقفز على النفايات التي تُستخدم في صناعة طعام الدواجن فيما يلعب في مدبغة في منطقة هازاريباغ. تصبُّ النفايات الملوّثة الصادرة عن مدابغ المنطقة الصناعيّة الأساسيّة في دكّا على مرِّ العقود في نهر بوريغانغا، فتقضي على الحياة المائيّة فيه وتجبر المدينة على استنزاف مياهها الجوفيّة. سنة 2017، أُجبرت المصانع على الانتقال إلى منطقة المدابغ الصناعيّة الجديدة في سافار.
