Poverty Situation of Families
Next to Metro Manila, Cebu is the second largest urban center in the country. In these areas, children roam around begging for food, used in sydicated drugs and make the streets their home – a situation that mirrors extreme poverty and neglect. With the deteriorating standards of living, the Filipino family is torn apart: parents leave their children to look for more income.
Migration to urban centers and to work abroad created a vacuum within the family. And as the communities become consumerist, the once caring Filipino community turned individualistic and concerned more of own survival and finds less and less time relating to one another.
