The Manila satsang group visited the Estero de Paco Manila & Segregation Bin Making, Activity Center, Paco Market.
The banks of the newly rehabilitated estero of Pasig is home to hundreds of families living in slums around downtown Manila, next to the Paco Market.
The satsang group was guided by the community leaders in building structures to hold the recycling bins. They proudly finished the new recycling bins to be distributed amongst the city residents to help keep their surroundings clean and green.
‘You may recollect what this river used to be like,’ said Mayor Lim, standing next to a bleak reminder of what the estero looked like, engulfed with garbage before the clean up. The cleanup drive was spearheaded by ABS CBN Foundation’s Pasig River Cleanup Project.
