Dental Care
I met a family of five by the side of the road selling drinking coconuts. The father is capable but restricted by his injuries after being hit by a truck when on his bicycle seven years earlier. The mother likes photos but is shy because she has lost many teeth from lack of access (can’t afford) good dental care. They live in a ramshackle hut of wood and tin with no running water. One son is studying and the other helps with their stalls by selling and cutting coconuts. They have a bamboo stall on each side of the road and he has to run across when a customer comes. The daughter, this young girl is animated and has a constant smile. She wants to be a dancer.
