The Philippines, with its pristine beaches, breathtaking views, stunning sun sets; and undeniably warm-hearted and friendly people, is still a developing country which causes a devastating impact on the livelihoods of its citizens, especially children.
The infant mortality rate is high; and many children do not have access to housing, nutrition, sanitation or education. It is highlighted that around 45% of the children in the Philippines is severely deprived of at least one of these critical needs.
As a Pinoy wife; and my love for children, I understood the need to get involved; and became a supporter of the Angel House Orphanage. The Angel House, located in San Isidro, takes in abandoned, neglected, abused and orphaned children, from birth to age ten.
They provide a safe and loving home, medical care; and education, to prepare them for a better future. As a registered NGO (Non Governmental Organization) Angel House does not receive any funding from any Philippine governmental agencies. They rely solely on the generosity of people around the world.
I know whatever amount I send periodically through Global Giving, will always reach the Angel House. Global Giving is a nonprofit that supports other non-profits; by connecting them to donors and companies. Since 2002, they’ve helped trusted, community-led organizations all over the world; and every donor can make safe and easy US tax-deductible donations.
I also hold an annual book-drive for the children at the Angel House, and send other necessities and surprises, to them. They are sent in a large care package (balikbayan box) through a trusted freight cargo service company, that provides door-to-door delivery; and usually reaches the Angel House within 8 weeks.
The first picture above is of me at home packing a “balikbayan box” and the second picture is of the children at the Angel House enjoying the treats I had sent them.
If you share my dedication to the children of the Angel House, I hope you’ll consider making a donation. Every dollar you contribute is tax-deductible and directly benefits these children in need.
Thank you, Alexandra
