This made me cry and also reminded me of a TV coverage in the Philippines similar to this. A very poor man served his neighborhood in the slum by killing rats. A neighbor comes to him and points to him where to find the rat's hole. After he kills the rat, he brings it home, takes out the skin and internal organs and wash very well and then cooks the meat as if he is using pork or beef. Then his family will eat it. That's how they can survive day to day.

I am sorry if I mentioned this.

This film teaches us to be grateful for what we have. So many of us take things for granted. How many people are hungry among us in our community?

If it were not for US aid including food stamps, the NMI would be in much worse condition than PI per capita person.

We would look like a far eastern outer island.

anon,

you are right, these people are lucky to have uncle sam giving them the food stamp or else they would have been experiencing the same fate or even worst. (

I feel sorry for those kids that are eating the left overs of those girls. But if you look at it in another perspective, if the girls (or other people) didn't waste their food, then the kids won't have anything to eat at all. And many more people will die of hunger everyday.
