Joshua is a little boy in the second grade. He is very active and likes to play with his neighbors. Joshua has three siblings. His father is a construction worker, and his mother is a housewife. The family lives in a house that has block and plywood walls and a galvanized iron roof. They need help to see that Joshua’s educational and nutritional needs are met. Through your sponsorship, Joshua will receive much-needed encouragement and support. 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.
