The Forgotten Americans

The Forgotten Americans exhibit featuring the photography of Enrico Dungca, will run from September 15 - December 15, 2017 at the Pearl S. Buck International Exhibit Gallery located at 520 Dublin Road, Hilltown, PA.  Through his portraits Mr. Dungca highlights the plight of Amerasian children born to U.S. servicemen and Filipino mothers. These children have desperately sought acceptance in their home country and legal recognition by the U.S. government, so far without success.

Mr. Dungca writes, “It is now my advocacy to speak for these children left behind. Though the majority of them are now adults, does that mean they will remain neglected? I have big hopes of using my passion in photography to bring light to the plight of these underserved citizens.”

Pearl S. Buck International has provided humanitarian aid to Amerasian children since 1965 and continues that work today through the Child Sponsorship Program. The recording artist apl.de.ap of The Black Eyed Peas was one of many impoverished Amerasian children in the Philippines sponsored through Pearl S. Buck International. Apl.de.ap now provides college scholarships to Filipino children through the Pearl S. Buck Foundation - Philippines.
