Mary Beth and I have been in slum areas in several countries and it’s always moving. I’ll never forget watching a child in Mexico dig through trash looking for food or entire families in Cambodia squeezed into one small room that served both as their home and their shop during the day where they would resell items they had repurposed from the city trash dump. In Caracas we saw thousands of shacks packed in together and heard stories of the kids who lived on the streets.
Here we have continually been in and out of the slum areas. The picture below is a home for old people who have no where else to live. The building behind it is an orphanage, both run by a Christian family.
