I could write an essay about what I have witnessed working and getting to know the less fortunate in China. THey all have bottom of the scale salaries but have houses with everything they need inside. They smoke and gamble as well. They should read this guys story and realize how lucky they are...
if you want something in life get off your backside, and do it yourself!! don't rely on others to do it for you

Hats of to China daily team for representing such beautiful story of parents love. I follow several leading daily from my neighbor country, but CD is unparallel in this front of representing story of poor and marginal people. Keep it up and special thanks to the Forum member who bring this story to all of us.

The philipinno president has billions tucked away in foreign accounts according to recent reports. W ...

It's estimated that there are about 4 million slum dwellers in metro Manila.  Of those probably 100-200 thousand live in conditions as bad as the poor guy in this story.  I've seen 3 families crammed in to a 20 foot x 6 foot death-trap of a house. Conditions in some of the outlying provinces are even worse. I'd have to say the worst living conditions I've seen first hand in the Philippines were the poor sods who live in the garbage tips.

It's heart breaking to see first hand, and even more infuriating when you see the wealth squandered in the USA in particular.

It is not a failed state HailChina! It's been raped by two colonial powers, the Spanish and then the USA.  It's so poor because they are "good Catholics" and have no chance of reducing their birth-rate and few resources of value.  

It would be nice if some of the armchair warriors and commentators here went and saw first hand just how terribly people live in most of the world.  World governments won't make it better as it the one world government you so naively promote will simply end up with the top end of the rich list running the show.  The same scum that are raping the USA at present and proving that corporate greed knows no bounds.

The real solution lies in population reduction, education and a massive redistribution of wealth in a fairer manner via overhauling the taxation and wealth redistribution laws.  Of course this won't happen as long as politicians are beholden to their political masters, that is the donors who contribute campaign funds and expect their pound of flesh in the form of favourable treatment etc.
