Benji is an active and funny boy living in the Philippines. He loves playing with his toy cars, dancing, and singing nursery rhymes. He lives in his grandfather’s house because their family’s small house was destroyed during Typhoon Ompong. Benji was abandoned by his biological father and his step-father has turned to smoking and alcohol to deal with the emotional stresses of their life. It has negatively affected Benji and the family. They do not believe in God, but they want Benji to attend AMG’s local child and youth development center so he can be better cared for. Through your faithful sponsorship, Benji will be fed, educated, and taught about Christ with the help of our center staff. Thank you for radically changing this young boy’s life. You will be a source of great blessing to Benji.
Mount Moriah Child Development Center
The Mount Moriah Child Development Center is greatly impacting children and their families for Christ. Nutritious food, medicine, educational assistance, school uniforms and supplies are given to the children at the center. The center staff show the love of God to the children under their care by helping them with homework, providing life skills training, and encouraging them in their faith. Through regular Bible studies, devotions and Sunday School the children are hearing the Gospel and their lives are being touched by the Word of God.
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.
