Cash hand-outs ‘only fuel crime, trafficking’

Cash hand-outs 'only fuel crime, trafficking' - Bangkok Post, February 26, 2005
Child rights advocates yesterday urged Thais and foreigners to stop giving money to child beggars, saying their kindness fed crime and fuelled human trafficking...
The report said many beggars were set up to look as if they were a mother and baby even though they were not related to draw sympathy from passers-by.
The report also said foreigners tended to give money to beggars and their daily average income ranged from 500-1,000 baht, depending on the location, with most of the money going to gangsters.
