LAS CHUNAS, CHACO, ARGENTINA - NOVEMBER 2012: Raul, 10, and Ezequiel Yukarovich, 6, are both blind. Raull was born missing an eyeball, and with neurological problems. Both of them suffer from hydrocephalus and myelomeningocele, a form of spina bifida. The community of Las Chunas is constantly affected by spraying of agrochemicals from aircrafts and spraying machines which do not abide by the legislation in force, and act in complete impunity and with the consent of the authorities. The products used for the spraying are glyphosate, 2.4 D, endosulfan and chlorpyrifos.
