Livelihood projects  on Leyte Island after the Super Typhoon

“The boats and putput bicycles are helping over 75 families with long-term, sustainable income.  This is a huge blessing for the families recently impacted by the Super Typhoon and other calamities.  Lives are being transformed”

Feeding Program for our High School Students ~

“We have over 125 students who walk long distances to get to and from our school.  Some leave their homes at 3:30 AM.  When they arrive, they are very hungry.  The feeding program you support at the school is the only meal for the students.  Having this available five days a week has greatly improved the health and attention span of these students.  We are so grateful”

– Principal, Marilog High School of Agriculture

Surgery Assistance ~

“We are so thankful for the work you did for our son to receive a very difficult and costly cataract surgery.  We had no funds to pay for this and have prayed many years for this opportunity”
