A young Pakistani girl smile broadly while looking at the camera. She lives in a community right alongside the railway tracks in Cantt Extension, Karachi. They are sandwiched between the tracks and a wall. Life is hard. They live in tents or under railway bridges. There is no privacy at all. Garbage litters the road on the other side of the wall.
It does not take a doctor to figure out that the children are suffering from diseases which are likely easily treatable if only they had the means to afford such treatment. Of course the root problem is poverty and social exclusion. Malnutrition appears to be a problem for some.
