My friends and I had the weekend off so I decided to stay in a hostel and do my own thing. Although traveling with friends is definitely the way to go, it can get tiresome from time to time. So when the next morning came I woke up and headed out with absolutely no plan. The only thing I wanted to do was to try and get some pictures around the city or river.

Exploring huge markets and strolling through the different atmospheres of the city was amazing! After walking a few miles I had finally made it to the river and sat down for a little while to scope out the surroundings.

Shortly after sitting on a small bench, a young woman came and sat next to me. I could see from her poorly done makeup and the way she dressed that I was a customer to her. I suspected her business was prostitution.

德士司机献爱心 免费接载洗肾者

外表粗犷的沈兴来拥有一颗善良的心。过去几个月来,他一周三次义务负责接送洗肾者林云莉(59岁)和她双腿不便的丈夫到洗肾中心,大大减轻了疾病缠身的这对夫妇来回奔波的辛劳。(严宣融摄)

对截过肢或以轮椅代步的洗肾者而言,每次要到洗肾中心,行动的不便让出行变得特别艰难。

自从德士司机沈兴来(43岁)两年前成为全国肾脏基金会(NKF)的义工后,无论何时何地,只要接到洗肾者的电话,他就会把电召系统调成“繁忙”状态,一路赶去把洗肾病人送往医院或洗肾中心,然后再接他们回家。至今已为60多名洗肾者提供了免费的载送服务。
