Hussan and Hussein 11 year old. twins Hussan & Husseinlive in the Pipeline slum. A rancid canal runs through the middle of the slum, where the twins wash, play and work.
Their father is an alcoholic, their brother is on drugs. The twins left schoolseveral years earlier, and make a living by collecting rubbish to sell at the local recycling centre. They collect the trash of the canal.
In contrast about my life and theire lifes, we couldsee a lot of diferences, first of all they work to help his family, but the most important they work to survive, whereas my mom gave me everything, and of course i dont need to work. For thisreason they don’t have the necessary resources to have a normal life, like go to school, however in the case of deepa we could see how she want to be doctor, but whitout resources she can’t do anything.
