A video of street kids getting a taste of ice cream from discarded cups in trash bin outside a snack shop broke hearts, with many netizens wishing that whoever took the video had actually given the kids a fresh cup of ice cream from the shop afterwards!
Posted on Facebook page, Spotlight Humanity, the heartbreaking video shows the kids hanging out outside the snack shop and going through the trash bin for discarded cups that still had some ice cream inside. The ice cream was melted but the kids didn’t mind.
You can see from the big smiles on their faces that they were so happy with the ice cream they got to taste, but it broke our hearts to see them so happy with the melted ice cream from the trash bin! Theirs is a picture of poverty as they enjoyed the discarded ice cream, in stark contrast with the beautiful pictures of the food hanging outside the shop.
Yet these kids were genuinely happy with what they were able to get from the trash bin. The older kids even gave some to the smaller ones who still can’t reach the trash bin – and they actually cleaned up their trash after “eating”.
The video is so heartbreaking; yet it also brought smiles as the kids seemed so carefree and loving. They were happy with what they were able to taste and were content with the scavenged ice cream from the trash bin…

These kids couldn't afford ice cream so they waited by a bin for what customers threw away 😔
