Pakistan’s Children

A beautiful child I saw on my way to Murree. She was selling hand-made fans on the road side when we called her forward to buy a fan off her.  While these children should be in schools, their conditions  force them to come out on the streets at such a young age to support their families. It’s very unfortunate that these sights have become common and we let them pass without taking a moment to think how these children make it through their lives. Rain or shine, these children come out every day and stand for hours hoping for people to buy their home-made stuff. I was glad our purchase could bring a smile on this girl’s face but how long will this smile last?
