Kwentong Bayan: Labour of Love is a community based comic book project, created by Toronto-based artists Althea Balmes (illustrator) and Jo SiMalaya Alcampo (writer) in collaboration with caregivers and supporters, about the real life stories of Filipina migrant workers. Caregivers share how they resist the exploitative structure of the Live-in-Caregiver Program, while creating a community where they can care for their well-being.
