Ulingan is a small slum community in Tondo, Manila that sits on a dumpsite and surrounded by charcaol factories that emit toxic smoke; there is no electricity, no access to toilets or sanitation. Children and families have no choice but to live with soot, garbage, mosquitoes, flies, vermin all day and all night. Children as young as three-year olds work in the charcoal factory to help their families. The common meal is "pagpag"(leftover food from fast-food restaurants scavenged from garbage sites) "Pagpag" means to shake away the dirt and maggots in the food.
