Matigsalog in the City

12matigsalog2webJunny Pandan, a Matigsalog from Davao City’s Marilog District, repairs broken umbrella at the Matina Aplaya Gym on Thursday, 12 Dec 2013. Instead of begging for food or money, Junny asks for discarded or broken umbrellas that he can repair and later sell to his neighbors for 20 pesos. At least 200 families from Davao’s Marilog District are now staying at the gym for the Christmas season. MindaNews photo by Toto Lozano
