When I made the last post, the Bathroom Scale Beggars, I asked, rhetorically, what would make me send a child of mine to beg in the street.
Nasty thing, rhetorical questions.
I did not know that sooner rather than later, it would be answered. By this article on the CNN website.
* 1.2 million of the world's children are trafficked to work for the benefit of others
* At least 7,600 child beggars work the streets in
* Study: 90 percent of the boys are sent out to beg under the cover of Islam
* Boys who don't make 72 cent quota stripped, doused with cold water, beaten
Now that I know, what am I going to do about it? Just another of those real life stories to remind me that I live in a jungle. The terrible, real life jungle of life. I am so well off that I am ashamed! But I do have to remember that some are that much worse off than I am.
