Gold Under the Bridge: A Story of Life in the Slums

Rooted in her experience of working with ATD Fourth World in Manila, the author captures the untiring, endless attempts of Mercedita and her family to free themselves from poverty. The book follows the family over a period of years and through numerous struggles, never losing sight of the relationships and bonds that support the family and their community living under the bridge of a busy road outside of the Filipino capital.
