ABSTRACT
The article describes the recovery situation of the Gulf Coast after Hurricane Katrina. In some areas like the Mississippi coast, homes and business establishments are being rebuilt and volunteer camps are active in the activities. However, in places like the Lower Ninth Ward of New Orleans, destroyed homes are not yet demolished, and overturned cars and uprooted trees scatter in the streets. The program Gulf Coast Walkabout allows children to build bus stop benches and plant flowers in parks.
