Alfriedzmar is a playful little girl in the Philippines who loves to color and play with her friends. She lives with her parents and grandparents in a small room without furniture. They sleep on a mat on the floor and use charcoal to cook their meals. Because of the economic condition of Alfriedzmar’s village, her father does not have a permanent job and is not always able to find work. Alfriedzmar’s mother’s low education level makes it difficult for her to find work as well. As a result, Alfriedzmar and her family often lack basic necessities. By coming alongside Alfriedzmar as her sponsor, you can help provide her with the opportunity to attend the Love Your Neighbor Child and Youth Development Center that provides nutritious meals, an education, clothing, and medical care for the children. Most importantly, at the center, Alfriedzmar will hear the gospel and will be taught Bible stories she can share with her family. With your partnership, we can help meet the deepest needs of this hurting family in Jesus’ name!
Love Your Neighbor Child Development Center
The Love Your Neighbor Child Development Center reaches local children with the Gospel. At the center, children receive nutritious meals, vitamins, medical care and education assistance. Center staff help children grow mentally and spiritually through tutoring, counseling, musical training and discipleship. The children are also taught the truths of the Gospel by the staff who also encourage them to grow in their faith.
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.
