On April 24, 2013 at 8.57 am, a garment factory building in Savar, Bangladesh collapsed killing 1129 people. Most of the perished were clothing workers who were ordered to show up for work despite dangerous cracks discovered in the building a day before. The garment factories were manufacturers for brands such as Walmart, Benetton, Mango, The Childrens’ Place and others. 2515 people were rescued from the building alive, some after days of being buried in the rubble. Many have since returned to work at other garment factories as this is the only source of income for hundreds of thousands in Bangladesh. These photos were taken in April, 2014.
