Children of the Garbage Dump

Here are some of the children who live at the slum next to the Steang Meanchay garbage dump. 

They may smile at you.  That does not mean they live happy lives and have no worries.

Most walk and run bare feet through the mud, sludge, garbage and worse.

Most eat food covered by flies.

Some pick lice out of each other’s hair.

Some play half-naked or completely naked in the rain.

Some bath in the open from the communal water pot.

Some are covered with sores.

Most make their living by picking recyclables from the garbage.  ... 

Many do not go to, or stay in school.  What is in the future for them?

You may have visited a number countries for vacations and pleasure but you should try taking flights to Hong Kong this time for a greater cause. If we have the will you should definitely come to such places and help these people so that they can avail the basic necessities of life and live a better life. Charity is surely a modest thing to indulge in.
