With a small bucket for donations, most walked by. CZ2A4760.jpg

He could not speak, and could barely move, being badly deformed in both limbs and spine. Someone had brought him to this street corner to use him to collect donations. I donated but also realized that I had to do something to at least move him to the thin padded mattress that had been left. I got the help of another man, gave him a pair of gloves, as I always have medical gloves with me, and together we moved him back to the mat. It was about all we could do and the least we should do.

Shanghai, China.

Good for you, John. It's sad to see that he is being exploited; much sadder than being treated indifferently (as seen in your photo).
