WATCH: Do we treat rich and poor people differently?

How would you treat a young child left alone in a public place?

Youtube screengrab of the Unicef social experiment on how people treat impoverished children versus clean  children.

JOHANNESBURG - The United Nations Children's Emergency Fund (Unicef) conducted a social experiment on video to highlight the finding of their 'The State of the World's Children' report.

The report states that 69 million children under the age of five could die by 2030 if the world doesn't take action to address global poverty.

It continues to say girls from poor homes are twice as likely to be child brides than those from the wealthiest households.

In the video, a child actor named Anano goes out on the streets of Georgia on two occasions where she is groomed and dressed in two different ways.

Passersby approached her, expressed their concern, asked her age, enquired where she stayed and whether she was lost. Some even knelt down to talk to her.

In the second case her face is ashy and she looks scruffy and is wearing visibly dirty clothes.

In this instance people wanted nothing to do with her, she was ignored and in some instances pushed her away and told her to go away.

This drove the little girl to tears and the experiment had to be stopped.

The social experiment aimed to show how indifference and distaste toward struggling kids is impairing their futures.
