Travel vlogger Ted Willis took a trip to Manila in the Philippines to explore Smokey Mountain, a poverty-stricken area with government funded housing. He discovered the people living here survive off of trash. They find "valuable" goods to then turn around and sell. While most people can't fathom this lifestyle, this is an everyday reality for these people. If you want to help you can donate to YWAM Balut a charity that helps the Smokey Mountain community break the cycle of poverty.
