Next time you feel like giving money to one of the child beggars (or women beggars with children) in Bangkok, think of it as more of supporting the illegal trafficking abusement of these poor kids.
They made a lot of money for the peoples who acquire and put them into work. And that’s why they are all over the place. In prime areas, “these children can easily pull in more than I do”:http://www.smh.com.au/news/world/child-beggars-exploited-beaten-and-making-a-small-fortune–forothers/2005/08/12/1123353501568.html as an Engineer.
Their situation made me feel bad about myself, because I just ignore and accept it as what Bangkok is. When I was young, I feel the kids selling flower garlands at street junctions are very unfortunate. But they are in much better condition than these poor things.
