Info

Fishermen in Saint Bernard Parish affected by the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

Exhausted, Van Huynh spends time with her children Quentin Vo, 2, left, and Renee Vo, 5, right, at their home in Marrero, LA on May 23, 2010. Van Huynh found a job in a nail salon working long hours to earn money for the family after her husband Minh Vo lost his income after shrimp season was closed because of the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. By the time the $5,000 check from BP arrived, it was spent within days paying bills. Forced from his shrimp boat, Minh Vo began cooking, cleaning and looking after the children at home.
