    Very enlightening story, but also very disturbing. I think more people from the U.S.A. need to go to other countries, like you have, and try to help or at least make other people aware of all that is going on. You have done a very good job of that with your photos and I hope I can do the same in the near future. Well done!!!

    Thank you for your comments. We have our issues here in the US also. I believe that we can make a difference no matter where we are. Lend a hand where you can.

    Henry, great photographs. I think its very hard for people to imagine that we still have major poverty around the world. I spent a few months in Cambodia and Laos a few years back and nothing can prepare you for the things you see. It actually changed me as a person. I'm more aware of the impact the western world has on these small countries. Go into any local market in Cambodia and you will find what clothes are made in the local sweatshops. A lot of companies say they are ethical but I found that many of the major brands are still being made in Cambodia. I think JPG should print this story in the next issue.

    I think your photo-essay is a strong documentary piece Henry. One with perhaps even more potential should you choose to explore that further.
    The very epitome of poverty, your images capture the essence of what many people will have be abridged from in visuality and in knowing. Poverty is at it's abhorrent best, the epitome of a world gone awry and your images help us not to forget that there are people for whom life, is very much a daily method of survival.
    How is that we as a people, we as humanity, got to this stage?

    I have voted for your story to be published in jpg, (not because "it rocks", hardly an apt description) but because it has brought tears to my eyes, and I hope that by having it published more people around the world will be made aware of the grim, desperate realities of everyday life in less fortunate areas.
    A well written story accompanied by excellent graphic photos.
