Sunken Village, Artex Compound, Malabon Philippines Climate Change
Artex Compound in Panghulo is one of the lowest areas in all of Malabon. During heavy showers, the entire Panghulo is easily submerged in deep water.
Water has flooded Artex Compound for years now with around 250 families affected. A cotton mill owned by the Yupangcos once situated in the same area has closed down during the 80's leaving its employees with unpaid wages and benefits. As a way to protest, the former employees decided to stay despite of the compound’s miserable condition.
