The other side of "Paradise"

My wife, daughter and I went to deliver some warm clothing that was kindly donated by some clients/friends to the people who make a life picking through what we throw away. I would like to say it was a sobering experience but I have seen this level of poverty many times.

I post this here for a few reasons. To show that what you donate to me goes where I feel it is needed most. To demonstrate the strength and resilience of people to find a way however they can and to remind you that just behind the hotels and beaches there lies another world, the real one.

Yes, I will accept donations if you bring them to me and if you would like to accompany me to deliver them, I am sure we can arrange something.
