Sorsogon City, Philippines.
Under an acronym that spells out the Jewish word for "Peace," (SHALOM). beneficiaries pose for me. Founded by Catholic Italian missionaries, which could not raise enough funding to sustain their church, and folded up their tents to withdraw, the priests should be pleased that civic leaders picked up the organization as a means to save children, who otherwise would be in the streets. Proud, they didn't beg, but only asked for a shot as a joke. Despite the contrasty lighting, I accommodated them, and caught an acceptable image.
