Jayritz is a boy studying in the eighth grade. He is described as extroverted, smart, and energetic, and has many friends. Jayritz has four siblings and lives with his parents, who are poor laborers. They are having a hard time sending him to school. The family lives in a house that is small but clean, in a rural village where most people work as farmers and fishermen. They eat foods such as cassava, sweet potato, bananas, and rice. Through your sponsorship, Jayritz will be able to continue his education, receive meals and medical care, and learn about God and His Word at the child development center. Thank you!

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.
