Girl Photographed Licking Water From Dirty Puddle In Heartbreaking Pictures

A heartbreaking picture of a poverty-stricken girl on her hands and knees drinking from a Puddle is shocking people across the globe.

The girl who looks around three or four years old, from the indigenous Mbya Guarani community in Argentina, was seen quenching her thirst during a heatwave as temperature soared to 37C.

The youngster and pals are said to beg for money during the day in the city of Posadas in the north-east of the South American country.

Voluntary worker Migue RĂ­os started a national debate which has now crossed the borders of his native Argentina after posting the picture taken by a local journalist - on his Facebook page.

Migue, who works at UNICEF Argentina and is based in Posadas, said in a message alongside the distressing photo: “While the country is on fire, this little Guarani girl hydrates herself from the ground.

“We must be doing something wrong as a society, mustn’t we?

Revealing the youngster was seen afterwards by doctors, he added: “Why did I post the photo?

“So that we finally start talking as a society about a problem which we often don’t do anything about because no-one highlights it, while those who should do something just carry on lining their pockets.”
