PROJECT: ARTEX - Life Goes On... Water!
Posted By: Ansbert, 04-19-2008, 08:12 PM

PROJECT: ARTEX - Life Goes On... Water!

Description: Artex Compound in Panghulo is one of the lowest areas in all of Malabon. During heavy showers, the entire Panghulo is easily submerged in deep water. Improper garbage disposals, poor urban planning, and the increase of informal settlers are just a few causes of the area痴 continuing flood problem.

Water has flooded Artex Compound for years now with around 150 families affected. A cotton mill owned by the Yupangcos once situated in the same area has closed down during the 80's leaving its employees with unpaid wages and benefits. As a way to protest, the former employees decided to stay despite of the compound痴 miserable condition.

We, EON PHOTOGRAPHY and PINOY PENTAXIANS, were able to get a permit to shoot the area and at the same time help the Artex community improve their old waiting shed (for their boats) by way of giving them cement, gravel, and other materials needed to finish and improve the aforementioned shed








Abet ^_^
