As with many other countries, drugs are a big problem here in the Philippines and it affects the whole family of those involved in taking or dealing drugs. It destroys marriages and children are left neglected or even abandoned as their parents are more concerned with their addiction to illicit drugs.
Despite the blunt and at times deadly attempts by the government to stamp out the drug trade, it remains a major problem in all areas of the country; from small towns to major urban cities.
Angel House has seen at first hand the tragic effects on families that have been involved with drugs and several of our children have parents that are in jail on drug related charges. The legal system moves slowly and it may take a year before their case even comes to trial, very few have the money needed to post bail. We provide the love, care and protection that their children desperately need at this difficult time; they are the innocent victims of this terrible vice.
Your donations through Global Giving enables Angel House to provide a safe haven for these young children affected by drugs and the resources to send them to school and hopefully rebuild their shattered lives.
