I was walking in the street of Iloilo City, Philippines when I saw this child sitting beside the street, begging for food and money. Took some photos of her and gave money after. She is a native people of the mountain area nearby.

Arman...I have been betterphoto member for just about 8 years. This shot is by far the most compelling and emotional image I have seen. This deserves the top spot in the contest.

Its heart-breaking and makes you stop and think.

Aurelia - thank you very much for the such a comment. You can see a lot of these kind all over the world, we just need to let others know that there are more people that are suffering. And we should be thankful on what we have right now and what we are getting.

Wow! Someone said once "We photographers do not change the world. We just show the world why it needs to change". This was exactly about works like this one. Bravo!
