Approximately 140 million children worldwide are orphaned and another 160 million children live in extreme poverty. Poverty, hunger, exploitation, lack of education, and social isolation, are just a few of the stressors that vulnerable children in developing countries face every day.

These traumatic experiences have the potential to impact every area of a child’s development, and relationships, also increasing the risk for post-traumatic stress disorder.

Children represent almost half of the approximately 900 million people living in extreme poverty. Families all over the world are struggling to provide their children with the most basic needs in food, healthcare, and shelter.

62 million children worldwide suffer from acute malnutrition, and 1 in every 7 children are underweight. Another 124 million children are not receiving an education, and those numbers have been increasing (Unicef 2016).

Roughly 1.2 million children are trafficked every year, and this number doesn’t include the approximately 20.9 million souls who have already been enslaved.

    Christmas Presents for Orphaned and Vulnerable Children

    Christmas is just around the corner. For many Filipino children Christmas is remembered as a Holy Day, but without the joy of presents.

    Between now and October 30th, we are collecting gallon zip lock bags of presents to be sent to the poorest of the poor, who are still recovering from the Super-Typhoon of 2013. In return, you will be able to see joy on the faces of the children when we take pictures at the celebration.

    Our goal is to provide at least 200 children with presents. Will you help us show a village the love of Christ this Christmas?
