Around the world are children who live and die on dumps ...this is the reality of the inequality that exists in our world.
– Ron Newby, CEO & Founder, Global Care
Working 14 hours a day, scavenging plastic, glass, metal etc. they put themselves at incredible health and safety risk and earn around 15p a day – barely a penny an hour. Their health frequently suffers from the rubbish dump fires. These children are exploited and abused in the extreme – the victims of dire poverty.
- Over one thousand of these kids struggle to survive on the notorious Stung Meanchey municipal rubbish dump situated on the outskirts of Cambodia’s capital city Phnom Penh. By any measurement, Cambodia’s ‘Rubbish Dump Children’ rank as some of the most vulnerable and needy children on earth."
Further, it is the mission and long-term goal of "Children of the Dump" to extend this network to dump communities where other children and families are in need of assistance, developing a network of assistance that will eventually reach through out Mexico."
