Journey to Cambodia 2017: The Landfill
Last year I posted a photo on our blog of a little boy I’d met living inside a Cambodian garbage dump. In the blog, I shared how difficult it was to learn how many children around the world work as trash scavengers each day (estimated to be in the millions). I was a bit stunned at some of the comments I received back after sharing this boy’s picture. People told me that the photo looked staged or that the child didn’t look very needy since he had on a silver necklace and obviously had food (which I had just handed him five minutes before).
