Can you imagine in the surburb of the city, there is a giant open-air landfill site, where live dozens of households  who feed on the garbage. For the children, the landfill site is their playground, the source of food, toys, and clothes.

Children will be children. They can smile and play despite being surrounded with adversities of their situation.   
There are so many like them especially in third world countries. It is common to see hundreds, or even thousands of households like them that make a living out of landfills in very poor nations all over the world.
It's very sad. Really hope they'll have a better life in the future.
