PANAMA

 

Once a thriving U.S. Naval Base in the Panamanian Province of Colon, Coco Solo is now a crumbling ghost town. Despite a lack of running water, sanitation services and reliable transportation, the facility has become a forced home for hundreds of indigent Panamanian families. With crime high and opportunity scarce, life in Coco Solo can seem hopeless. But a street-wise pastor has made it his mission to evoke a change there, and in doing so, has become the 'De facto' leader of his community.
