Street children are a painful reality of every country in the world. We also find them in Bucharest, Romania, twenty years after the 1989 revolution, like an inheritance of the communist regime. Abandoned in hospitals at birth, they are taken in shelters for children, but most of them end up in the streets, dwelling in the sewers, ruins or any other filthy corner of the city. You can find them everywhere. They live their lives taking drugs, smoking, prostituting or self-injuring. Some of them are given "a helping hand" from the transitory shelters, where they find food, warmth and a soft bed. Others choose "life" and decide to move to permanent shelters for abandoned children, where they receive comfort, support and education. Among those, some are able to rehabilitate themselves and find new families. But these are not so many.
