Small children have alot on their minds

Many young children are forced to do the work of adults. This is often caused by the death of both parents. We saw these 2 girls carrying this sack home. They looked to be between 8 and 10 years old. The sack was so heavy it took both of them to lift it.
It is sad that young bodies are not protected from the rigors of hard work. I asked a community leader if it is good to start work at a young age, his response was the same as ours. It is not good for their growing bones but its often a case of survival.
