Make That Change

Last April 24, 2014 was the official launch of Facial Care Centre’s very first Corporate Social Responsibility program with Headshot Clinic, Climate Change Commission, and Emmy-award winning Filipino producer Michael Carandang. Entitled “Earth Faces,” this project’s mission is to raise awareness on the effects of climate change.

The aftereffects of such natural calamities, both emotional and physical, can still be seen and felt all throughout the world. And it is with these experiences that the project was born.

The team relayed their stories about taking photos of Yolanda’s survivors and their families in four island provinces, and printing their family portraits on the spot.
