This project will support 40 children who are abandoned, neglected and surrendered children in the Philippines by providing their basic needs like food, clothing, medical and educational assistance.
Several children are being abandoned and neglected by their biological parents. These children come from the streets or are products of broken families, unwanted pregnancy, rape or incest, early marriages, and poor families. Many of them have also experienced different forms of abuse at a very young age; others have been forced to live or are abandoned in the streets. The situation of children working and/or living on the street is viewed as a violation of the rights of children.
Tahanan helps these children in need of special protection (CNSP) by providing them temporary shelter where they are provided with their basic needs, medical and psycho-social assistance, and education. It is a place where they can feel the sanctuary of God's love and care and where they are protected from further abuse. Tahanan also processes family reunification for those children with capable families/relatives. Tahanan also process adoption to give them opportunity to have permanent family
Children are healthy, educated, properly clothed, with good moral conduct, safe from any form of abused, some children are reunified to their families or relatives, some will be adopted or fostered by a licensed foster or adoptive parents. These will help in giving better future for the less fortunate children.
