Young men play soccer against the backdrop of new numbered residential buildings on the island of Hulhumale, an artificial island standing 6 feet above sea level that is being built opposite Male, the capital of the Maldives. Since it is at a safer elevation that existing islands, the government is encouraging settlers from outlying islands to resettle there. The Maldives, April 2005.
