MONGOLIA. Ulaan Baatar. 6-year year old Huyga, sleeping soundly, alone in the darkness whilst his parents and grandfather go out and search the street for bottles. Leaving their child is an obvious risk, especially as rumours abound about homeless children being abducted from the street in recent years. As the global financial crisis grips Asia, Mongolia is feeling the implications first hand as the country suffers from rising inflation pushing the price of food and fuel ever upwards. For the country’s homeless, who live in sewers and abandoned garages in the capital and already face extreme discrimination and are denied access to basic health and social care, their lives are hanging in the balance. 2008
