A glimpse of Philippine poverty
7 months ago

I was in Philippines recently and while driving to do errands, I came across this child, who looked to be about 4-6 yrs old, carrying an even younger child who looks to be about 2. They were sitting right in the middle of the road. A friend of mine told me that in some cases, the youngest children are given a sedative and are used to gain more sympathy while begging for money.

Just around a corner from where I took the photo of the child and toddler. 2 children lay on the floor with who I imagine is their sleeping mother.
