In Philippines, homeless families are a frequent sight. The type of poverty seen in developing countries is a very stark contrast to developed countries. For one, countries like the US and Canada have systems in place that provide aid to the homeless, whether they are in the form of shelters or food banks. In Philippines, government systems seem non existent, and if they did, no one has heard of them.
