Default Municipal dump in Campina Grande (state of Paraíba, Brazil). - Reportage

Municipal dump in Campina Grande (state of Paraíba, Brazil). People
working in here deal with ,, recycling ". They pull out from the
garbage everything they can. Paper, glass, metal.... Then they sell
it per kilo. They are paid 0,12 R$ ( 0,05 euro) per kilogram of
plastic. Stink, dirt, poverty. Waiting for next trucks with garbage
is a part of their life here. Small, provisionally bulit ,,houses" made
of anything they can find here - foil, plastic, wood, some scrap of
metal sheet. In the time of rain or heat they serve as a shelter.
People in here? They do not look unhappy. They smile. They work they
carry out is not an easy one. But they profoundly believe in God. ,,He
will take care of us". Most of them is illiterate. They are born here
and they die in this place. They do not know other life. Only a few
people attend nearby school, lead by missionaries. They do not feel
such need. ,,Is it going to change our life anyhow?" They just live
from day to day.
Wonder, why are so many people in westarn countries depressed? They
have everything. The Dump People have nothing; but perhaps they have a
beliefs, friendships, the feeling of belonging to a community. The
welthiness tends to isolate people. They are just richer and richer,
surrounded by lots of things (houses, cars, equipment, etc.), they
tend to play with it and lose true relations with other people?

Look at all these pictres:
