RE: Should I Give Money to a Begging Child When Traveling?

in Haveyoubeenhere3 months ago

I just found this in the new section, glad I looked.

We've traveled quite a bit as well. Unfortunate fact—by giving to the children or any locals while abroad, the target on your back is magnified by the entire community.

@dandays this is true, one act of kindness can open you up for more trouble though the road... I tend to just help people privately as that seems to be the best course of action... But who knows right? I wish there was an easy answer for everything.

It's depressing, for sure. I always help people as I can but depending where you are, it could cause you more harm than good.
