Child in the Gold Land

The children of illegal miners grow without forest nowadays, different from their parents and grandparents. The forest previously provided their daily needs such as foods, playground, as well as a place to learn. But now the children are used to buy manufactured foods. The damage of the forest means the declining quality of the life of the next generation.
