Adhea is a sweet child living in the Philippines. Her family lives in an old cement and plywood house with four other families. The house is two stories, and the floors are dangerous to walk on. Each family gets a room to sleep in. She shares a room with her parents and three siblings, of which she is the youngest. Her father is a mason worker, but his income is too low to provide for his family. Due to their lack of income, Adhea needs a sponsor to continue her studies. By sponsoring Adhea, you are providing her with resources to help with her basic needs, education, and spiritual walk. Because of your generosity, Adheas life can radically change through a relationship with Jesus Christ.
Papuri Child Development Center
The Papuri Child Development Center partners with a local church to make Christ known in children’s lives. Every week children are immersed in the Word of God through church services, Bible studies, discipleship meetings, youth group, and devotions. Additionally, children are served nutritious meals and given medical assistance at the center. Center staff are available to mentor, tutor, educate and encourage the children to follow after Christ.
The Philippines is a country that consists of over 7,000 islands in Southeast Asia. It has many active volcanoes and its location and torrential rainfall means that several areas are prone to flooding, typhoons and cyclones. The majority of the population is Roman Catholic, but some people are superstitious and still practice animism. Poverty, alcoholism and widespread drug use plagues their communities. This has led to broken families and abandoned children. There are few consistent job opportunities as well, making it difficult for parents to provide for their families.
