Published on Mar 27, 2012

Sunday, 25 March 2012, was a day full of moving and thought provoking experiences for the participants of a pre-assembly event of the World Council of Churches (WCC) Commission on World Mission and Evangelism (CWME), who spent half a day with a community living at a garbage dumpsite on the outskirts of Manila, Philippines. Smokey Mountain is home to some 30,000 people surviving through scavenging. The community now fears demolition orders from the Philippines government who wants to initiate a housing project in the area. Father Tito Loyola of the community organization Aspiring Citizens for Community Empowerment and Solidarity Inc. explained everyday life in Smokey Mountain to the theologians and church representatives participating in the mission conference, as well as the involvement of the churches supporting the struggles of the community.
