An Aeta child stares at the camera while her mother tries to fit the cute little slippers on her that somebody gave on the street. Aetas are some of the early people of the Philippines, they can mostly be found in the Zambales provinces and from time to time, they go to the nearby cities and areas to beg for some food, clothing and money. Whenever they come by, we always give them something.
