Art for River Healing

After a recent visit to the Coloocan river, the youth from MCYPD we're deeply moved by just how polluted their river has become. The elders shared stories of how fish, turtles and people used to swim and play in the water. The youth felt strongly that one day they would like to see the turtles return. It will be alot of work, but we started today with a little step. Using chalk we drew fish, turles, and more marine life around a community drain. The drain of course flows to the river. And the river to the ocean. We must be conscious of our contributions to the river of life. And a little re-minder always helps! Next we hope to paint the creatures beside the other drains in the community.
