The Cross of the People

The Holy week of the Roman Catholic Church is celebrated during April. The cross of course represents the sufferings of Jesus Christ during the biblical times two thousand years ago  with which He was to save those who will believe and follow His steps in God’s grace.

I borrow the concept for this cartoon depicting the poor social services in the country - the cross that Filipinos carry all year round since time immemorial. I believe that the state should make all social services affordable and accessible in order to alleviate the situation besetting especially the poorest of the poor.
