In the hopes of promoting clean water, a public advocacy organization in the Philippines has been drawing attention to its cause by using water from the polluted Manila river to create dirty water artwork.

The ABS-CBN Lingkod Kapamilya Foundation collaborated with a creative agency to create these watercolor paints from a polluted river and then asked local artists to create images of men, women and children playing in the water. The result is a series of beautiful pieces of water artwork that have a poignant message -- that clean water initiatives are crucial as polluted water greatly affects the inhabitants around it.

Poignant promotional work such as these paintings are an important stepping stone in having people comprehend the magnitude of some of the health-related issues of the world today.
