Streets of Phnom Penh

By terminalfunk
I have been wandering around the streets of Phnom Penh to spend with the families who live there. It can be difficult for them to make enough money to even have a roof over their heads. I sat with a family of eight, they where sleeping down the side of an ally next to the rubbish bins. To feed themselves they have to beg for money to pay for food. I gave them a few dollars and some sweets. I see children younger than this dragging carts and collecting rubbish in the blistering heat to make just a little money.

A lovely portrait - may her future be safe.
Thank you, I've tried to not let this affect me, but how can it not. I intend to spend a lot more time with the people here and put a body of work together.

peace & love
