Don’t Go to Tondo! It’s Not Safe?

When people found out we were going to Tondo for a medical mission, many warned us not to go! Is it really that dangerous in Barangay Baseco and Smokey Mountain? I joined NAFCON (National Alliance for Filipino Concerns) in our annual medical mission to the Philippines. We partnered with CREST (Community Response for Enlightenment, Service and Transformation, Inc.), Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila (School of Medicine), and other grassroots organizations to provide medical services and health education to the people of Tondo, a community infamous for poverty, crime, and violence.
