Two days ago I read a story about a Beijing rickshaw driver who chains his two-year old son to a lamp post near Huaguan Shopping Mall in Liangxiang. The reason was that the boy's mother spends her days working at a garbage dump and his father cannot look after the boy while he is working either. The father said that his four-year-old daughter was abducted some months ago, and he doesn't want to lose his boy, too. The family is too poor to pay for childcare.

This story took the hearts of my family, and as I think that there are probably many more families like this one, is there any way to improve those people's lives? Sure you cannot help everyone at the same time, but I feel that those of us who are better off may be able to lend a helping hand. A responsible society should make childcare affordable for those in need.

What do you think?
