Pakistan

Is a very poor country roughly the size of California in Southern Asia. Lying along the Arabian Sea, it is bordered by India, Iran, Afghanistan and China. Pakistan has a relatively large population in respect to the land mass. 150,000,000 people fill the habitable land at a rate of 490 person per square mile. They have a high infant mortality rate and a very low literacy rate with less than 43% of them even able to read. The country suffers from political disputes, no foreign investment and a very costly confrontation with their neighbor India, With debt, defense and general administration consuming more than 80% of the government revenues, there is very little left for social development and social services do not really exist. More than 40% of their population live below the poverty line. Like many countries in this condition, the children suffer the most! Many of the orphans are children of Gypsies and Kiln Workers. they live in tents and huts beside the roads in and there are many of them! The parents and children are often slaves to their masters in the Kilns and they suffer from many diseases and overall poor health. Some have even sold a kidney in a desperate effort to feed their family. There is little or no education for the children and due to their poor social status in the community, when the children lose their parents, there is no one there to care for them! They did through the trash to survive! They sell themselves into slavery just for a meal.
