It’s just a sad reality for an elderly to pick up cardboard everyday only to survive.
Ms. Yim lives alone in Incheon, South Korea at the age of 86. In order to live, she goes to different buildings and houses to pick up cardboard boxes every morning.
Regardless of the chilling climate, she rummages through trash and recycles any pieces of cardboard she finds.
According to her, she only does this if only for her children not to worry about her. She knows that they have their own families to support.
