English term or phrase:scavenge
the homes of the poorest are built of flimsy materials: bamboo, cardboard, chicken wire, newspaper, tin cans, boards and other scavenged materials. The gaps in the walls let in some air but the ground is wet, they have a bench to sleep on, for they are often close to rivers which flood knee deep. Apart from the bench there is only a rack for clothing and dishes.
