Caption : Zamboanga. In a small tent between a busy highway and the cramped Cawa-Cawa shoreline, this young mother gave birth to a baby boy – eight days before this picture was taken. Jonde admits it wasn’t an easy feat, but for a member of the seafaring Badjao tribe, it wasn’t a novelty either. "Joel keeps waking as vehicles go by," she tells us.
