BASECO (The Bataan Shipyard Corporation Compound), near the port of Manila, is home to most migrants coming from central and southern parts of the Phlippines. This community is populated by around 6,000 urban poor families, mostly working as ambulant vendors, construction workers, itinerant labourers, port stevedores and other settlers looking for work possibilties available in Metro Manila. It is estimated that around 40% of Metro Manila's population live in urban poor communities such as in BASECO. copyright Nana Buxani/2006-2008
