Brett Durbin discusses trash dump communities and the Trash Mountain Project

Founder and Executive Director of the Trash Mountain Project spoke with Dispatch Radio about their ministry and detailed the suffering of individuals living in trash dump communities.

Described as landfills, “like you would see here” in America, entire communities “pop up” in areas all over the world.

“Once we saw the extreme need in these areas…every form of evil you could imagine is present…every  kind of sickness, a poverty level I’d never seen….I was having a hard time processing it,” Durbin explained, recounting his earliest encounter with the trash dump community.

Now working in Dominican Republic, Philippines, Honduras and Cambodia, the Trash Mountain Project created a documentary titled Stay which is available on their website.

Stay documents the efforts of the organization but features the miraculous healing of a young girl who is HIV positive.

“It’s like the disease had reversed itself to where it was if you had just contracted it,” Durbin explained.

The team expanded through this event which took them to the Philippines.
