In the capital of the Philippines, ten-year old Jobert Rio Florido eats with his grandmother Rodelin Carillo in a mausoleum that is their family home in the Manila North Cemetery. Hundreds of poor families live here, dwelling in and between the tombs and mausoleums of the city's wealthy. They are often discriminated against, and many of their children don't go to school because they're too hungry to study and they're often called "vampires" by their classmates. With support from United Methodist Women, KKFI provides classroom education and meals to kids from the cemetery at a nearby United Methodist Church.
