Rescuing children living in deep poverty in Jesus name! There are over 2 million children who are abandoned or orphaned in the Philippines.
These child survivors face extreme poverty, armed conflict, and natural disasters everyday in one of the most disaster-prone countries in the world. The Philippines is located on the tectonic plates and is in constant danger of typhoons, flooding, landslides, earthquakes, volcanoes, and
These orphaned or abandoned children are in survival mode. Their days are spent finding food and water, and then if they find some, they are in fear of having it stolen from them. Without our help they have no hope of an education.
We know these children need inner healing and to know their lives matter to us and to God! They have a purpose! Our programs are Christ centered and church driven! We connect the children to people who can holistically and specifically help with their individual needs. And we give each child nourishing food, a bed, medical care and education.

WAYS FOR YOU TO BE INVOLVED
Releasing Children From Poverty
Our vision is to provide for abandoned, neglected and orphaned children in the Philippines, a sense of security and belonging. And we are counting on people just like you to help us by giving. Our Beverly Best Medical Clinic built for the community is completed. What we need are people to partner with us to help us complete the children's home.
The Need for Clean Water
For The Philippines
A recent study found that 52% of Filipinos, which would be over 50,000,000 people have no access to safe drinking water. Every year millions of people, mostly children, die from diseases that are associated with the lack of safe water, lack of sanitization, and hygiene.
The Philippines rank ninth in the world for stunted growth rates in children. That means 1 in every 3rd child is stunted. Malnutrition and hunger for long periods of time in the first 1000 days of life stunts their growth. We provide nourishing food for these children.
Many of these children do not have money for even basic needs. They are forced to spend most of their time looking through mountains of garbage for food water and clothing.. Children who do go to school, often walk long distances through dangerous terrain, and may swim through dangerous rivers to get there. We provide the children with school supplies, food, clothing and help them get safely to school.
The Philippines is located on the Pacific Ring of Fire. At least 60% of the land area is subject to natural disasters. Making it one of the most disaster prone areas in the world. This area is subject to typhoons, flooding, earthquakes, landslides, volcanos and drought. We send aid into these regions during these times, working together with local partners.
How can I help children in the Philippines now?Our most urgent need is to complete our facilities so we can begin taking in children. This need is absolutely critical. You can help us by making a contribution. We need to complete this project as soon as possible. Become a Keeper of Hope today.
What is Hope Village International doing to respond to the shut downs due to Covid-19 in the Philippines?Our regular programs have been paused due to the fact the government will not allow access into some of these areas most at risk. We do not know the true extent of the challenges these orphans or abandoned children are facing now. What we do know is that children were not allowed outside their home for a span of almost 1 year. Since these children do not have an actual home, and depend on scavenging and begging for their food, we have no idea how they have been surviving through the very strict lockdowns. We are so very eager to be able to begin helping them again.
When will Hope Village begin Medical Missions trips?As soon as the restrictions are relaxed we will begin mobilizing medical teams comprised of volunteers. We are unable to offer free medical care since the pandemic because the rural population do not trust people from larger cities, or especially from foreign countries.
