In the capital of the Philippines, Aramay Calma hangs laundry over tombs in the Manila North Cemetery, where she lives. 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.
