    Luis Godinho

Children and adults of various ages struggle every day for their survival, picking up trash. They find plastics, rubbers, cans and other products and gather them in their large bags. Depending on the uncle of garbage they find, some is for toys, another type to sell and even to eat. Every time a big truck arrives the fight for the better garbage bags is a crazy thing. It is a constant struggle every day, but often there is no solution.
