the black life

In the slum areas of Tondo Manila there is the town called Vitas a place known for charcoal making. Everyone there are making charcoal for a living and despite of the health hazard of this kind of work they still continue doing it in order to survive. Even their children are participating in this dangerous job. They are always expose not only on the smoke emitted from burning of wood but also from the foul smell of a nearby dump site. The usual sickness that they get is tuberculosis but they don't seem to mind it all.
