The Philippine Paradox


The Philippine Paradox

Date: 11 Aug, 2015  No Comments

The Philippines is a sovereign island country in Southeast Asia situated in the western Pacific Ocean consisting of 7,107 islands with a tropical maritime climate. The island nation boasts many beautiful natural wonders and vacation destinations any traveler would enjoy.
But as with every coin, there is a flip side to the Philippines…..a paradox, if you will.

There are the skyscrapers of the capital city of Manila…and the shanties of those struggling to just survive.

Skyscrapers in Manila contrast with shanties of the poor in the Philippines.

There are the children that are blessed to be able to attend school and gain an education…and those who do not have that opportunity and are seemingly relinquished to a life of hardships and poverty!

The paradox between great beauty and suffering will continue on … but what can we do?
