January is a month of reflection for me, I remember how privileged I was to observe all the outstanding work and beautiful photographs of the past year. For the last time this year, I would be honored to congratulate you for your spectacular work and willingness to share with all of us, Happy New Year, Merna Nobile

As we tour Manila we found ourselves in the middle of Ulingan (charcoal factory) - Vitas, Tondo (Smokey Mountain).
There we met with the pastor of Malaya Kids Ministries, a non-profit organization,
who assists the children of Ulingan and deals with the massive child labour happening within the area.
He furnished us a permit so we can photograph what is happening
and hoping that the outside world would take notice and understand their plight.
