Not really an eye opener, we all know this goes on all over the world. We just choose to ignore it!!
After all there is more important things, like, "Damn, I didn't get the car washed this week!".
The human race passes these kind of things off with,
"It's someone else's problem, what can I do about it?" then sits down to a roast dinner.
There is something seriously wrong with us, yes, I'm as guilty as the next person!

Shocking and fascinating in equal measure. Beautifully captured Jeremy. The light is gorgeous even if the subject matter is not.

Sensitive, informative, superbly captured and heart breaking. I did some work on an orphanage in Sri Lanka some years ago, it's sad to see little changes. Nice one Jeremy

a very interesting fact is that these kids maybe the happiest of the lot.. their reliance and trust on God is phenomenal and unshakeable and in that way they are blessed..
it serves as a great recycling industry and hardly anything that you see there goes to waste.. even those cocoanut shells will be sorted out in the end by someone and used for making choir mattresses.. it is a very effective industry and provides many their livelihood..
