Giving money to a poor Vietnamese kid in Can Tho.

I saw this poor brown kid with close set eyes working all day in the sun and then buying a disgusting sugar drink with dirty ice to quench her thirst. It made me want to help her so on behalf of Thanh Tran, Daniel Trinh, Khanh Pham, Roger K and Steve I gave her some money to help her out.

These kids are like toy soldiers. They endure an extremely hard and monotonous existence but without the slightest trace of self pity. Their sunny attitude is in direct opposition to the harsh lives they have to navigate from an early age.

No toys, no school, no school friends, no protection and no fun on the holidays.

I hope this money and the feeling behind it managed to give her a little boost for that one day.
