City of Despair or Deliverance?
To many, Puerto Galera is a glimpse of heaven on earth, but to the poor who live in this area, it can be a place of pain, due to hunger, abuse or poverty.
Children at Risk
Many children have had to quit school in order to help support their families. Often young girls are sent out to sell products to strangers along the beaches and resorts, because children produce more sales than adults.
BUT GOD is showing His Love to This Community
Through one act of kindness in 2003, a seed of hope was planted...and it has been growing.
Buying Bracelets from One Turned into Buying Bracelets from Hundreds
You have heard it said, "You can't change the world, but you can change the world for one person." We started by helping one friend on the beach who was selling bracelets to feed her family. But the Lord multiplied our efforts, and many volunteers began to help sell the bracelets we purchased. Ten years later we are buying over 100,000 bracelets each month, helping to support hundreds of families.

The More Bracelets We Sell, The More We Can Help
Through the sale of bracelets and outside donations, this little girl Baby Angel has had one needed surgery, and is preparing for her next. When we were in the hospital with Angel for her first surgery (a shunt put in her head to relieve the conditions of hydrocephilus), there was a child in the next bed with the same condition. A few days later, that child was not in our room any longer. I asked what happened. Apparently, while the parents were waiting for money to come in to pay for the surgery, the child's head grew too large for surgery to be done. They were sent home.
