Harbor Village comments on Brazil's underworld of drug abuse and child exploitation.

Just like the children in Brazil, anyone can be susceptible to drug addiction regardless of race, gender, or age.

As reported by Channel 4 (6/9) today marks the opening day of the World Cup which takes place in Brazil. Despite economic set backs and civil protests the first day was celebrated by soccer fans across the world. However, underneath the glamour of the World Cup, and general excitement, there is a not so glamorous side which strikes the every-day Brazilian: poverty and lack of governmental assistance. This reality is specially felt by the children who live in the outskirts of the city such as Recife whose lives are surrounded by crime, violence, and drug abuse. Despite being one of the fastest growing economies and indeed the seventh largest in the world, the government as done very little in way of helping children living in poverty. As reported by Channel 4 children living in the city of Recife often engage in drug abuse to escape the usual sex exploitation they endure on a daily basis. In effect, it is common to see children sniffing industrial glue out of containers in order to feel high and suppress their hunger. In addition, children also use marijuana and crack in order to cope with their problems. As reported by Channel 4, drug addiction becomes also a negative factor as children, once addicted, use sex as way to support their drug decency.
