Rowena is a shy little girl in the Philippines. Her parents separated because the mother refused to have an abortion. Currently Rowena’s father does not support the children financially. Rowena’s mother works as a helper to provide for the family. However, she is unable to provide for the most basic needs. Your sponsorship will provide Rowena with nutritious foods, clothing, an education, and opportunities to experience the love of Jesus at the center. Thank you for choosing to care for this child.
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.
