Donate to Children in Philippines
For impoverished children in rural areas of the Philippines, life’s basics needs like food, clothing, shelter and health care are hard to come by. That’s why it’s essential for people to donate to children in the Philippines. Your support provides hope.
Poverty is common among rural families, who typically make a meager living from agriculture. Some parents tell their children “one day, one eat,” meaning that they only eat one meal a day. Many families also cram into one small room at night. There is also a lack of good educational opportunities for children. Because of that, many young people simply give up and get involved in gangs or drug abuse to numb their feelings of hopelessness.
The Philippines’ urban centers, such as Quezon City and Manila, are home to millions of desperately poor families. In fact, in Manila, more than 20 percent of the population survives on less than U.S.$1 per day, don’t have their own toilets, and they don’t have enough money to provide medical care. At an early age, children often become involved in gangs, prostitution and other dangerous activities.
These are just a few reasons why generous people are needed to donate to children in the Philippines through Compassion. Compassion centers serve as a haven where children can go to be safe, accepted and enjoy learning. It is not uncommon to see Compassion children, especially youth, hanging out at their center on non-program activity days to escape the harsh realities of their living situations.
