Film is barely four and a half, yet he needs to get up early to pick through garbage in the busy streets and laneways in the shadow of the skyscrapers of Khon Kaen.
Each item Film finds will earn a BAHT or two when taken to the recycling centre.
Film learned a devastating lesson when his parents abandoned him as a baby. Film and his elderly grandmother, Lamai, make 300 or 400 BAHT a month from whatever they can find and scavenge doing this dirty and smelly work.
As many as 2.5 million children still live under the official poverty line. These children suffer from inadequate diets, health and education, limiting their opportunity to thrive. We can change this! A small gift each month helps UNICEF spend more money on changing children's lives and less on administrative costs. Our focus is not on child sponsorship, but we aim to ensure that our work will have sustainable impact on the life of every child.
Give a child a life, a chance, a choice. Become a Friend of UNICEF, Donate to charity and support children in need with charity donations you can afford, today.
