"Bangladesh is one of the world's largest exporters of labour, but thousands have been left without work as the pandemic slows economies around the world"
"DHAKA - Five years ago, Belal Hossain left his home in the low-lying region of Garuikhali, near the coastal mangroves of southern Bangladesh, to work as a builder in a construction company more than 2,000 miles (3,219 km) away in Malaysia.
The 29-year-old said leaving his village in the Sundarbans - a fragile ecosystem already being affected by climate change impacts, from soil salinity to higher seas and river erosion - was the only way he could feed his family of five.
But the company he worked for in Malaysia suffered losses due to COVID-19 and was forced to make cuts. Hossain lost his job and returned home in March this year.
'Soon after I came back, we were hit by Cyclone Yaas and my family's farmland got devoured due to the rising water,' he told the Thomson Reuters Foundation."
