Rescuing the Little Hearts of Manilla
In the Philippine capital, misery is often part of the scenery. Touched by insecurity, numerous families find refuge in the slums, while the children live alone out on city sidewalks. Their injuries are profound: abandoned by their parents, sometimes raped by their father or beaten by their mother, numerous kids take shelter under bridges and down in the gutters. In turn, they become victims of drug use and prostitution. Hurt by injustice, solitude and bruised by violence on the streets, these youth don’t have access to proper care or education. In the slums, the situation is hardly any more hopeful. Thousands of families pile into makeshift dwellings amongst the garbage, under sheet metal and sheets riddled with holes. Their environment is unsanitary, their future uncertain. In this despicable yet hopeful context,the Anak-Tnk Foundation, led by Abbot Matthieu Dauchez, takes action day and night amongst these kids, “to get their little hearts back on track.” Through these deeply moving images and poignant testimonies, this documentary plunges us into the misery of the slums and the pavements of Manilla. It’ll leave us glimpsing the joy and hope of these children who offer everything and receive nothing.

He approaches his work with intensity, frankness, empathy, and humor, convinced that if teams are not having fun, something’s not right.

Catholic Focus - Create a Climate of Change   
Climate change has been a major topic of debate in the past decades. Today it is one of the world’s greatest challenges. It affects everyone. It affects especially the poor. Inspired by Pope Francis’s encyclical Laudato Si, Development and Peace launched their yearly campaign in the fall of 2015 on the theme “Create a Climate of Change”. The encyclical insists that climate change is more than an ecological issue. It is a human issue. This is the organization's main concern. Now, as part of their Share Lent campaign for 2016, they are inviting Canadian Catholics to support communities in developing countries in little or big ways starting right at home.
