    Please try not to judge these people with 1st world values. Their world is completely different. Lack of education and access to fresh, affordable healthy foods is a widespread problem.

    I have no problem with news, but the lack of divéristy in terms of how al jazeera portrays the philippines is shameful, killings – slums – abu sayyaf – poverty is the only source of news that they want to report,
    The philippines is beautiful country and they need to report about the good things about this country aswell, its always negative

    The video said 40% of children in the Philippines are stunted due to malnutrition. That's a higher rate than in North Korea. How sad.

    haha nice one aljazeera.
    how much did you get from the Liberal Party for this report?
    This is just another propaganda by the Liberal Party, thanks to aljazeera, to make people think that the Duterte government is too focused on its war on drugs. That it does not care about the hungry Filipinos.
