Charpoy or Indian Jute Strung Punjabi Bed

A charpoy is a traditional Indian jute strung wooden poster bed used mainly for sleeping outdoors in hot summers. I grew up near Sikh neighbours, the men of which were employed as night watchman or 'jaga' in Bahasa. They spent the night on watch on a charpoy. It is extremely 'cool' with all the ventilation holes and the natural fibre used to string it.

In Pakistan was devastated by flooding in its agricultural Indus valley. Nearly 20 million people were affected, and many were displaced from their homes for months at a time. Many of the families affected lost all their accumulated wealth.
