in Siem Reap, Cambodia and you made the choice to sit outside in the pub street alley, it's quite likely that a child will come along and beg for money.
Their stories are heartbreaking and it takes a strong heart to say no ...
But giving them money only keeps them begging and they likely won't even see any of the money anyway.
So, if you think you're life sucks, think of how lucky you were when you were nine. You probably didn't have to wander the streets asking for a handout.
