In this picture that I captured this Summer, I portrayed these small, poor and homeless children. They didn't have conditions to learn as other children of their age. Thus, they played their favourite game " Who lies more under the water ". One of them struck his head under the water, one counted time and others watched and prepared to challenge each other. Despite the poverty, they were very happy. Their game reminded me my childhood. After I captured this photo, decided each of them to give some money, so they could buy something to eat.

These are some shocking statistics that I red from internet regarding " Children and Poverty "

Actual population in our planet is 7.3 billion.
1 billion children worldwide are living in poverty. According to UNICEF, 22.000 children die each day due to poverty.
Nearly 1/2 of the world's population, more than 3 billion people live on less than 2.50$ a day. More than 1.3 billion live in extreme poverty, less than 1.25$ a day.
805 million people worldwide do not have enough food to eat.
More than 750 million people lack adequate access to clean drinking water. Diarrhea caused by inadequate drinking water, sanitation, and hand hygiene kills an estimated 842,000 people every year globally, or approximately 2,300 people per day.
Oxfam estimates that it would take $60 billion annually to end extreme global poverty--that's less than 1/4 the income of the top 100 richest billionaires.
