HOPE VILLAGE INTERNATIONAL 2019

This is what poverty looks like.

"The group we were a part of went to the city dump, the Smokey Mountain of Dumaguete. As we passed, the smells were horrifying, as always. Large packs of dogs were looking for morsels, loitering, or even sleeping in the massive pile of waste. At our arrival people took a break from digging into the trash, for a moment, to walk into the nearby stand of trees, where Pastor Abella had instructed the feeding to take place."
