13. Notes

13.1. In these slums in India, it is really tough to get through each week.

13.2. I feel like quite a few people think that because they live there, they are people who don't work hard and don't really care about much which is not true.

13.3. In that slum, the community is really tight and mostly everyone is there for each other and they will give up quite a bit for each other even though they don’t have much at all themselves

13.4. It is home 700,000 to 1,000,000 people

13.5. It’s the 2nd largest slum in Asia and 3rd in the world

13.6. The only way to get out of this poverty circle is to get a good education

14. Health services

14.1. The health services in the slums are very poor and doctors face around 4,000 cases a day of sickness and illness
