Smoky Mountain

The poorest of the Philippines' poor live among mountains of garbage.

 

Adults carry bags of trash into an abandoned warehouse. They sift through the garbage for food or recyclables, leaving the leftovers of others' leftovers to rot while flies swarm, rats scurry about and their children play nearby.

 

THE NEED Let the world Know!

THE ACTION proper medication, education and Compassion
