I heard about this when I was travelling the Philippines a few years ago. It’s easy to see how it happens, because there is abject poverty no matter where you look.

There were a lot of older Western folk knocking about too, which surprised me, until I heard about this, then it all made sense. Hopefully, this gets stopped sooner rather than later.
