When Angel Relief began humanitarian missions in 2005. One of the places we came to was Smokey Mountain in Manila, Philippines. I have just read about this place in the news, but never imaged that I would go there. Basically Smokey Mountain is an dump-site area in Manila where thousands of poor people including many children are trying to find things to sell and eat. Around this area thousands of people are living in slum areas with tiny small houses build upon each other with very limited space. We visited some of these house and it is almost unbelievably that people can live in such a little space. We also came to an area with a closed factory, that was now used for people to live in. No doors or windows or toilets. They had nothing, it all looked really really poor. And just even more unbelievably was to be right in the dump-site at the Smokey Mountain. To see all the small children looking through all the trash was heart breaking. Our hearts were touched to see a change in this community and other poor areas like this. One of the ways to help is to support education. To get these children into school must be a priority, so that the can help themselves and their families. That is one of things that can be one. There are also other ways to improve the life of these poor people that will have a positive effect that can change their communities.(Agricultural farming project)
Angel Relief have compassion for these children. To see them transformed and transforming their communities. The pictures has some fog or smoke on it, that's why its a little unclear.
