One dollar Misteeeer?

Begging is traditionally accepted in Asia, as it is often the only form of social security that exists for those in need. However, children are not supposed to beg. But because tourists tend to give more easily to children, there are now many children forced by their parents to beg.

 

Do you think giving them money really helps them?

 

I decided not to give money to children, but I do give them food or other useful stuff.
