Outside a morning market in Svey Rieng in Cambodia, this little boy was wandering alone, already accustomed to putting his hand out to westeners. It’s a common sight all around the world- the younger the child, the more money they can make. The older kids need to have a story or a younger sibling to carry along. Unfortunately, for a large proportion of the world’s population this is what kids do .

    feel bad for this little one

  • I agree Titus, it’s very sad to see these little ones and to think of the millions of other babies in the same position. There’s no ‘social security’ or pension in Cambodia, so if you and your family are out of work, you’re out of luck as well. One of the good things though, is that there are so many NGOs (at least in the cities) that there are opportunities to be doing good while you travel. (which opens a whole new can of worms!!!)

    Thanks for your comment Titus, I appreciate it!!!! :)))
