Crossing a sewerage on a gas pipe

” A typical Afghan refugee in Karachi will be seen doing all the inhumane labor, from picking up garbage to doing construction work for a dirt cheap price. Here, you can see a kid with a load of garbage on his back, crossing a sewerage on a gas pipe. Before i could shoot, there were a whole dozen of them crossing it, mostly trying to push each other off, a childish behavior indeed but they are children alright, i mean, deep down inside, underneath the coat of dirt, hardships and irony, they are still … children”

    plight of refugees in pakistan , here government not in a position to provide facilities to their own citizens how can we handle refugee matter , anyways a deplorable situation. places like these harbor insects and mosquito which creates health problems. least we can do is to clean and mobilize the garbage and cover the open holes to avoid accidental falling into the sewerage lines.
