THE LOST CHILDREN
After waking up mid-afternoon and
crawling out of the sewer tunnels,
Ciprian stumbles into traffic drunk
and high.Viorel tries to drag him back
into the median where the tunnel is
located. Ciprian has lived on the
streets for 12 years.
A numbing high: Marion Dragomir, 17, gets a light from a friend, while a street kid behind him sniffs paint from a plastic bag. The paint, which kids call glue,
numbs them from hunger and cold, but leaves many kids physically and mentally damaged.
