So it is mind-boggling to me so far when we have 200,000 illegal workders in Laos but the illegal workers forces khonLao to find jobs in Thailand.  If we remove these 200,000 illegal workers then khonLao would not have to go to Thailand at all then and khonLao can replace these illegal workers positions Roll Eyes.

$100 a month is per capita income. Some make more, some make less, many in the country side don't have jobs or income at all. Some of my relative are farmer, they don't have regular 9-5 jobs. Some from the country side looking for jobs in Vientiane might get disappointed, and end up going to Thailand looking for work instead. It's not like land of opportunity "U.S.A". Where you can just walk anywhere, to any company and apply for jobs.

Homeless people in Laos, but not necessarily beggars.

instead of giving them 25 cents (which is a whole lot of money lolz ) i would hand them pepsi or a cup of rice. handing them cash will only make some of them go buy drugs and get more high and then commit a crime and it all stem from that 25 cents. so yea i think a wise person would give out food/water or some kind of material support like clothing.

I feel so bad for my people. When I look at them I see my brother, my uncle. I hope government has social program to help homeless people in the future. Laos is a socialist with only 7 million we shouldn't have any homeless or poor people.
Huh

I like your idea, buying them food and clothes instead, but they can't buy drug with $.25.
Cool

When you approach them from "out of the blue" situation, you won't have any pepsi or cup of rice with you.

You can donate materialistic things through organisations, but when you're on the streets and a beggar comes out of nowhere, you just give them whatever you have, and this is usually in the form of money.

LaoCowboy, It's all paper money in Lao currency.


Lao LXE, Any decent person will give some money to the other 5 kids as well. Will it affect your holiday budget that much if you give 20-50 cents to each children?

I feel so bad for her and her baby. I'll be very kind to homeless people when I visited Laos. Is there a non profit organization helping homeless people in Laos?

My uncle works for World Vision Laos, he gets paid $500 US per month.

I recommend donating some cash to the homeless when you see them on the streets.
