Life in the slums around a Filipino coastal town.

Jocelyn Manatad and Rosalina Suico live in the expanse of slums around the Filipino coastal town of Davao on the island of Mindanao. Like many poor farmers and peasants, they moved to town looking for work, education and medical facilities, but they had not expected the poverty to be ten times worse than in the country. Both women make roofing tiles for the Mindanao Land Foundation, an organisation that works for the poorest of the poor.
