Sulawesi is one of the four larger Sunda Islands of Indonesia and is situated between Borneo and the Maluku Islands.
Huge deposits of gold have been found 250km of the capital in the Bombali District in 2008 and since then, it’s the gold rush and hundreds of people go there hoping to get rich!
Children quit school and work instead for 10-20 dollars a day, which I think is not too bad over there..
Here are some sad black and white photos showing a bit how things happen over there…
