Aldrin is an active and friendly boy who lives with his grandmother in the Philippines. Aldrins father passed away, and soon after, his mother left the country to find work. Now, his grandmother takes care of him. Aldrins grandmother is unable to work, so their income is solely from what his mother sends them. This amount is not enough to buy proper food for Aldrin, his grandmother, and his six older siblings. Aldrin is the youngest of all his siblings, and his only prayer is to get an education. Aldrin loves to play with other kids, but due to his malnourishment, he is unable to participate in a lot of the activities. Sponsoring Aldrin would be a tremendous blessing to him and his hard-working mother. By sponsoring Aldrin, you would be giving him access to a proper diet, schooling, and most importantly, guidance and support in his walk with Christ.

Every week children are immersed in the Word of God through church services, Bible studies, discipleship meetings, youth group, and devotions.

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.
