The special bond between siblings

Love between siblings can be so profound that it often lasts for a whole lifetime.  Siblings grow up together and play together; they are companions, great care takers, teachers, guardians and sometimes substitute parents.

It is particularly so for children from poor families, as they play a far more direct role in each other’s health, wellbeing, and safety.

 Here are heart-warming photos of the special relationship.
