Van Huynh bathes her son Quentin Vo, 2, at their home in Marrero, LA on May 23, 2010. With her husband out of work as a commercial shrimp boat captain because of the BP oil spill, Van Huynh has had to find work for the family to financially survve. By the time the $5,000 check from BP arrived, it was spent within days paying bills. Now the family of six don't know how to survive. Forced from his shrimp boat, Minh Vo began cooking, cleaning and looking after the children at home.
