Poepl working and leaving in a garbage dump in Cambodia
In then suburb of Phnom Penh there is a district where all the garbage from the citiy is dumped. Many people live there with their whole family, most of them are migrants from the rural side of Cambodia who couldn't succeed to find a job in the city and ended up there. I have been told that they could earn more in one day on the dump than farming rice. However the dump is dangerous, many kids have been killed under the trucks discharging the dump and many are injured with the waste which is on the floor, among them medical waste. Another problem is the high level of dioxine(PCB) and methane gas which they inhale all along the day. THe families live next to the dump, in makeshifts.
