Life in a dump outside Tokmok, Kyrgyzstan

Natasha and other poor and/or homeless people near Tokmok, Kyrgyzstan dig through the piles of garbage every day for hours to find glass bottles, metal wires or other items that can be sold.  It is dirty, unsanitary, dangerous and competitive work that only earns the people about 100 to 150 som per day, about $2 to $3.

Natasha lost her husband very recently and now she works on her own in the dump everyday for hours.
