Living with the Dead
Would You Live in A Graveyard? Pasay City's Alternative To Slums. Nov 8, 2017
With authorities turning a blind eye, the Pasay City Cemetery has become host to hundreds of people looking for living space beyond the dirty and overcrowded slums, with the added benefit for some of living above the tombs of their ancestors and family members. Joel Tozer and Ana Maria Quinn report for Dateline, SBS Australia.
The Bizarre Filipino Community That Lives In A Graveyard
Bagong Silang - A unique community has developed around the cemetery for the city of Navotas, but they are threatened with eviction from their adopted home.
The Navotas city cemetery is at the centre of a unique community. Nearly 2000 families have made their homes on, around and inside its walls. Now, for the first time, the residents are fighting for their future
The Cemetery People - Navotas Cemetery
Over 6,000 people make their home among the tombs of Navotas Cemetery, located in the Philippines on the shores of Manila Bay.
Living with the Dead - Manila North Cemetery
The Manila North Cemetery for some people call this place as a home. Over 10,000 filipinos living inside the cemetery. The Manila North Cemetery (or Cementerio del Norte), which measures 54 hectares, is considered the biggest and one of the oldest cemeteries in Metro Manila.
We live with ghosts in the cemetery
Rare footage shows how homeless families live in the cemetery, sleeping, eating, kids playing, cooking on top of graves and general survival. Note the stacked grave slots for those too unfortunate to own a plot. Those slots can be rented for $250 for 5 years. Often, the relatives can't be located or even pay for renewal at the end of the term. The BONE COLLECTOR will then transfer the bones to the BONE WAREHOUSE until claimed, IF EVER!

The CCT program
'Conditional cash transfers (CCT) are a stepping stone to universal health coverage, not just help for individual families'. CCT program gives cash transfers to poor families, provided, among other things, that pregnant household members seek antenatal care and a health professional delivers the baby. It requires that children aged 5 years and younger are immunized and monitored in case of malnutrition, and that children aged 6 to 14 are dewormed twice a year. More than just granting cash, the program intends to break the vicious intergenerational nature of poverty.

Cash In Hand: Conditional Cash Transfers Free Families From Poverty - ADB

Remark this is an album in the album Organizations working for children in the Philippines

ADB is providing US$ 400 million for a conditional cash transfer program that will puts money directly into the hands of over half a million of the Philippines' poorest families. Unlike traditional welfare programs, only families who keep their children in school and give them regular health checkups can receive cash stipends

Public hanging: Manila’s homeless and the Philippines' dirty linen

The new street-homeless are everywhere – in the streets, on sidewalks, along the seawall of Manila Bay, and outside idle lands, abandoned buildings – as ubiquitous as their dirty laundry, left to hang dry, in full view of the public eye.
The skyline of Metro Manila is rising. The construction of high-rise residential condominiums is in full swing. Real estate is again booming.
But homelessness is ironically increasing, too. Metro Manila holds the dubious record of having the largest homeless population than any other city in the world. Over 3 million, or one-fourth of the total urban population in Metro Manila, are living in informal settlements.

The Video: Why street dwellers continue to increase despite CCT program

More than four million families in the Philippines are beneficiaries of the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD)'s conditional cash transfer (CCT) program, which provides poor families with monetary aid. Jul 4, 2015

Kid who studies on Cebu sidewalk: I want to be a cop or doctor

Nine-year-old Daniel Cabrera keeps a rosary in his school bag to protect his lone pencil from thieves
When asked, the Grade 3 student from the Subangdaku Elementary School in Mandaue City said he owned only one pencil. Daniel said his last one was stolen by a fellow student before. “It (rosary) is to prevent my only pencil from getting stolen,” Daniel said in Cebuano.
When asked, he said the only school material he lacked was a drawing book. He's waiting until his mother could afford to buy him one.

Bgy. 649, Baseco Compound, Port Area Manila

The urban poor are one of the most vulnerable sectors of society. With a society giving them no choice but to live in small, over crowded spaces, homes they can only afford to be built w/ light materials, fires like this famous BASECO fire in 2004 can crush anyone's spirit. Thanks to groups like ZOTO and Save the Children which try to bring emergency relief in these times of need. May 25, 2015

Paracale's mountain of gold

George P. Moya Oct 25, 2014

In the village of Maning, in Paracale, Camarines Norte, a network of pits and tunnels snake their way under a mountain, where thousands of people go everyday to search for gold. The area has around 400 mining pits in operation, up from just 20 in June 2014, but since a 7-kg. high-grade gold was found there, the number was dramatically increased to 400. Here, miners risk their lives daily to look for the precious metal, their ticket out of poverty.

The toll: destruction of nature, and even death.

The waterworld of Artex - Malabon documentary
Water, water everywhere: The irony of Artex

Life in the compound is idyllic. The afternoon sun casts a golden glow on the homes as a gentle breeze cools the surroundings.

There is only one problem: The entire compound is permanently flooded. Ironically, the 200 families living there do not have direct access to clean water. They have to row boats to get their daily water supply.


Look the full story HERE


Why Artex Compound is called 'Venice of the Philippines'

Thirty years ago, the Artex Compound in Barangay Panghulo, Malabon was a thriving community of laborers working for the Artex Yupangco Textile Mills Corporation, living together with their families. When the workers staged a strike in 1984 because of low wages, the company fought back claiming their low pay was compensated by free housing. After a long legal battle, the company decided to close down in 1989, but the workers decided to stay, claiming the property as theirs.

Landownership problem and control of resources remains as a political development issue in the Philippines. Agrarian reform is a necessary condition for agricultural modernization and rural industrialization and the fundamental mooring for global competition. Agrarian Reform has contributed to improvement of the socio-economic conditions of landless farmers and political development of the Philippines in terms of engaging the landless in the process of policy making and distribution of large private landholdings to the landless. Modalities giving peasants a stake in society such as decisive role in agrarian legislations, engaging them in dialogue to resolve agrarian cases, presenting manifesto pinpointing their criticisms and recommendations on implementing rules and guidelines, identification of farmer beneficiaries and lands to be covered, negotiation on the mode of land acquisition and distribution and computation of land values, have significantly influence the process of democratization and establishment of participatory institutions at the local and national levels.

Saving a Fishery and Coral Reef - Apo Island

In a remote fishing village in the Philippine archipelago, coastal fishers responded to falling fish stocks by working harder to catch them. The combination of dynamite, longer workdays, and more advanced gear caused stocks to fall faster. On the edge of crisis, this small community decided to create a no-take marine sanctuary on 10% of its coral-reef fishing grounds. This initiative sparked a renaissance of not only their fishery, but also their cherished way of life.
