Nelsi Nieto Aguirre plays with a hoola hoop near her home in Villa Pasco, 15 km from the city of Cerro de Pasco, Peru. Villa Pasco was designated as a potential site to relocate the population of the contaminated mining city of Cerro de Pasco. Electricity, water and homes were build in the 1990's, but today 70% of the homes are empty. Residents of Cerro de Pasco complained that the homes are too small to live in. This family is one of the few that relocated, and the father currently commutes to work in the mine.
