This story has really touched me. This man has such a simple dedication to his baby daughter, and his situation is so sad and tragic sad...

Just wanted to share, really.

I remember a rickshaw driver I saw in Indonesia. Most are/were motorised but this man was on a pedal rickshaw, and because of that earning power is less (obviously a pedal rickshaw would be cheaper to buy). He looked incredibly weary/weak and the only way he could make a few pennies was by hauling people in his rickshaw.

It's easy to forget, in the UK, how hard life is for so many people in this world.
