The boy and the bamboo

October 10, 2006


A teenage boy along the shoreline of Sitio Luzaran, Brgy. Lapaz, Nueva Valencia, amid rows of oil-smeared bamboo poles which stand as witness to the destruction wrought by the oil spill on Guimaras. Petron Corp.-chartered MT Solar I sank off the southern coast of Guimaras last Aug. 11, spilling 1.3 millon of its 2.19 million liters of bunker fuel. The spill has affected the livelihoods of 26,000 residents in the world famous resort island. Photo by Hazel P. Villa, PDI Visayas Bureau
