PHILLIPPINES:
Slumming in Manila

December 7, 2016

After some challenges being allowed to board the plane from Dubai, I have now arrived in Manila in the Philippines.
It is a really hectic city I’ve landed in. Join me when I visit China Town, drive in the chaotic traffic, and when I help to mix cement in the slum for some of the houses, that the organisation Gawad Kalinga is building. Houses, that are going to stand, even when the many typhoons hit the country. And one of them is on its way right now.

Visit Gawad Kalinga’s website.
Visit Old Manila Walks here.

This is one of the many shacks that needs to be replaced with concrete houses.
