I am currently living in the Netherlands where you do not really see this in the streets. When I started travelling around, I noticed how bad the situation is in Europe. There are so many people asking for money, it is awful. This picture was taken in Milan, it was quite horrendous to look at. Yet, this is the reality in many european countries. I have also seen some really upsetting beggars in Spain. Especially when there is a medical condition attached to to their stories. The governments really need to find a way to take care of these people. Their stories need to be heard.
