The Need: There are approximately 1.7 million children living in the slums of metro Manila, Philippines. These children are faced with extreme poverty and forced to wander the streets looking for provisions for their basic needs. These undernourished children face sickness, street fights, sexual exploitation, and exposure to substance abuse. Many of these children can be found sniffing glue to numb their hunger pains.
The Mission: RESCUING STARVING CHILDREN FROM THE STREETS OF THE PHILIPPINES
The Difference you can make: We currently support missionary Lance Gotcher in metro Manila, Philippines. He oversees 4 churches in this area and is reaching over 2,000 Filipinos every weekend. In addition, we partner with Manna Worldwide by sponsoring 3 feeding centers connected with these local churches. Daily we are feeding hundreds of children physically and spiritually in Jesus’ Name. The cost is only $1 a day to feed a child.
The Need: There are approximately 400,000 orphans in Guatemala City. With a lack of orphanages to care for these children, kids are wandering the trash heaps of Guatemala looking for food, water, and clothing. In addition, due to extreme poverty, parents are throwing their infants away because they cannot afford to care for them.
The Mission: RESCUING ABANDONED CHILDREN FROM THE TRASH HEAPS OF GUATEMALA
The Difference you can make: We are partnering with Manna Worldwide and completed building an orphanage to rescue abandoned children from the trash heaps of Guatemala. The orphanage is able to give them 24/7 care, food, clothing, shelter, and education. The cost is only $10 a day per child.
We have an opportunity to offer faith, hope, and love to the world’s neediest children. We are partnering with Christian leaders to have the greatest impact as we provide nutritious meals, emergency medical care, clean water, and spiritual hope.
We want to reach children that suffer most and equip them to achieve their full potential in Christ. And when we pray, give and go, we are making this desperate need a reality.
