Sunset while a farmer works in a corn field in Gagauzia

A pensioner collects the little corn he has obtained after a year of drought. His pension is so low that he has to continue working. His children are in Russia working and cannot help him. In Gagauzia (Moldova) there are few jobs and they are poorly paid.
