How can I stop the locals
from using all these white sand to built their houses,
or export them to the other neighboring islands to make artificial

I will lose all my white sand sanctuaries , it is going to be your
where can you still find such places in the world?
of the marine world is at stake too.
How can I stop the local fisherman from dynamite and cyanide
It seems like, it is the only way to catch the beautiful
rainbow fishes. They blow up the coral to catch the rainbow fishes,
who lives in them,
and export them to the neigboring countries, for their private aquarium.
At what costs?
Sometimes, the fisherman loses an arm and a leg,

my artist friend from Camotes Island.

What future will

They still need more roads and infrastructures,
health and sanitation services,
as well as more livelihood opportunities.

spare me a dollar?
I am appealing to all
of you out there,
to lent me a hand in preserving this island.
One Dollar, One Deutsche Mark, One Peso,
One Yen, One Pound, One Euro etc., is not much...

in these children's future as well as the islander's.
Ming's World is about preserving Mother Earth.
It is a private initiative engaged in various projects
for the growth and development of the island.
Ming believes that in giving the people
what is due to them,
it instills a sense of responsibility to themselves
as well as to their environment.
And you, in turn, can help me,
shape the future of these islanders.
Your contribution is greatly appreciated,
be a part of my island,
be a part of Ming's World.
I would also
be grateful for useful gifts
& medicine for clinics,
and pens for students,
and equipment for research stations
and new clothing for orphanages.
