Gentle Hands is a child and youth welfare agency meant to be on the front lines of rescue (in coordination with Local Government Units) and rehabilitation of the medical, social, psychological, and educational needs of at-risk children and youth, advocating for the rights of children and working towards improving human community life through the love of Jesus and family centered care.
UNICEF estimates there are 1.8 million abandoned and neglected children in the Philippines. These children are left to the streets and dark places and, without help, face a life of poverty, hunger, sickness, abuse, beatings and assaults with little chance of escape. For many their lives are all too short.
But you can help change a life. We take in so many children that come with sad and horrific stories of neglect, abuse and abandonment. You can help rescue a child.
And with your help we begin to change lives.
Your donation. Your support. Your kindness makes a difference. Your donation, whatever the amount, helps us maintain a safe haven for these children. We provide medical support and life changing treatments and surgeries. We ensure babies and children can grow in a safe and supportive environment knowing they can have a healthy meal, education and, most of all, a chance.
It may seem overwhelming but your donation, no matter the amount, adds up. It’s your donation along with many other donations that create a future for these children. A small act can make a big difference.
