Street Children at Christ's Table

I found this film on Candy Gourlay's blog -- http://volcanochild.co.uk/index.html.

Joey Velasco, the painter in this film, says he wants "to share the stories of a handful of small lives whose voices are often unheard and whose tiny dreams are shattered before they can even take form." This film is set in the Philippines, with references to Africa at the end.

"For I was hungry, and you gave Me something to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave Me something to drink; I was a stranger, and you invited Me in..." Matthew 25:35

I should add -- we have these children in every country. How will I respond to those around me? That's what I'm grappling with after viewing Velasco's film.
