Abandoned - I

Sandra, alone on a bench of the famous Praça da Sé (Cathedral Plaza) in the city centre, once a favourite hang-out for the many street children in São Paulo in 1993.

 

Rescuing street children is a painstaking, long-term job, where few organisations are willing to make such an investment. Could mean a long wait for children like Sandra above, already abandoned on the streets for some years.

 

See her today, ten years after this photo was taken.
