IT'S NOT JUST A FEEDING PROGRAM

By David Donaldson | Project Leader

The pandemic and the subsequent lockdowns have had a tremendous negative impact on the economy and the income of many Filipinos; this has resulted in more families living in poverty and struggling to feed their families. Angel House is committed to assisting these poor families in our local community through our feeding program; here is the story of two families and how your donations have impacted their lives.

Joel is a seasonal laborer who earns $4 a day harvesting coconuts, not enough to feed his family that includes a small baby and his elderly mother. His other two children, Joname, aged 7, and Jemuel, aged 5, have never been to school and their small wooden house has no electricity or running water. Angel House provides one 25kg sack or rice every month to this desperate family and our social worker will also assist the family in enrolling their two children in elementary school; education is the key to breaking this cycle of poverty.

Thirty-one-year-old Liezel is a single mother with two young children aged 2 and 4 years; she tries to make a small income by burning coconut shells to make charcoal while caring for her little children. Their house has no walls, door or floor and no young family should have to live in such terrible conditions. Angel House will donate one 25kg sack of rice every month and we also have plans to make their house habitable by completing the walls and installing a door. This will give her family security and a brighter future for her children.

We currently have ten families receiving sacks of rice every month from Angel House, but this is more than just a feeding program. Through our interaction with the community we reveal other issues of concern that need our attention, such as making sure children are being educated and that homes are safe and secure for young families. With your support we hope to assist more families during this challenging pandemic and give them hope for a better life.
