This is our final report as the children at Shepherf of the Hills Children's Home have been sponsored! We are rolling over project proceeds to help the Philippine Community at Abatex where the children below come from. Here are some of our success stories:
AAI has been helping the people of Abatex, a “village” created on a dumpsite in Rizal, Philippines for 10 years. The pandemic has been brutal for this village as they have been locked down for months with almost no ability to work, grow food, buy groceries and sustain life. The children below are the poorest of the poor and truly need your help for basic survival. The sponsorship donations help with their education and medical needs giving them HOPE and a brighter future!
Gerner — 11 year old boy
Gerner has no parents but even so, his smile is bright. He survives with the love of his siblings and his love of basketball. He truly needs someone to “coach” him to a better life!
Neathan– 10 year old boy
Neathan’s father is a garbage collector, his mother is unable to work which creates an environment of extreme poverty for this child. Neathean copes by pouring his focus and passion into basketball and clinging to the hope that somehow, someone from somewhere will help him.
Princess Gimena – 11 year old girl
This small child wanders the streets begging for food to feed herself—and her family. She carries a heavy burden for one so young. This princess truly needs a “fairy godmother (or godfather) to help her have a safe, productive, happy life. Her literacy skills are low as she needs support for her education.
Shalanie – 6 year old girl
Although Shalanie was born with a speech defect, she dreams of a bright future. Her mother shares those dreams for her daughter but will need an ANGEL to help make those dreams come true.
Thank you so much for your previous support and if you click on the link below you can help other children like those we have reported on here. Lets keep on keeping on!
Thanks so much to all our donors.
We are deactivating this project as the sponsorship program is going beautifully and the kids are being sponsored by AAI members who have visited Shepherd of the Hills and fallen in love with the children there. We appreciate the support from Christine Paige, Director of the child sponsorship program and she sends each sponsor a letter and update from their sponsored child regularly. We are tentatively planning a return trip in January 2021 led by Cheryl Robinson and hope all of you can join us!
The supplemental funds we did raise enabled us to respond to emergency requests from Abatex, our dumpsite project near Manila and Sinethemba Hope House in S Africa. Thank you so much for your generosity.
