In more than 15 years, this land has been the place for immigrants & landless citizens to find safety & build new life. In 2006, a local documentary film director worked with 7 children in the boat slum & created the first child-made documentary film called Green Meadow. To these children, life in a village of 20 houses floating on the river is not only poor and full of hardship, but also filled with love and care. Living in a place which most people would consider as a precarious existence, the children think this home of theirs is heaven. Been around the city, Duc has several connections & understand the living conditions of those people here, he gets connected with different NGOs & social organizations to assist them not only living standards but also the job opportunities.
