Walking into the slums, children will come from every direction to greet you. They arrive with warm welcomes, bright smiles and loud laughter. But behind this cheerful outlook, their lives are unimaginably difficult. As is characteristic of most slums, these children suffer greatly from hunger, malnutrition, improper hygiene and lack proper shelter. It is not uncommon to see most of these children running around barefoot and barely clothed. Any form of proper sanitation is almost non-existent here; therefore, many children become sick quite often.
