Abegail V. Selacio

Suggested Donation: $20.00

Abegail is a silly and playful girl in the Philippines. She lives with her parents and six siblings in her grandparents’ small, one-room house. This house is in a densely-populated squatter’s area where violence and disease outbreaks are common. Abegail’s parents often fight with her grandparents, so her father wants to rent his own home. However, the economic conditions of the village and his low construction wages do not allow this possibility. In fact, Abegail’s parents are not financially able to meet many of her needs, including educational costs and nutritious food. With the help of a sponsor, Abegail will continue to receive assistance from AMG’s Maranatha Child and Youth Development Center, which helps meet her deepest needs. At the center, Abegail has discovered a love for drawing, singing, and dancing! She thrives in a community of friends and enjoys learning new things. Most importantly, Abegail hears the Word of God regularly and is able to share the Bible stories she learns at the center with her family! Thank you for impacting this family physically and spiritually.
