Baseco, the Manila City-owned 14-hectare lot by the harbor, has in the past years developed into a community, with about 6,000 urban poor families, who strive to survive as ambulant vendors, construction workers or through any possible opportunity where they can earn money - even to the extent of "donating" their kidney for P 10,000.

Having the chance to visit the place is a complete eye-opener for me. One will wonder how they can live in an environment like that.
