There Is Hope In Love

There Is Hope In Love

You Can Make A Difference

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. For more than 20 years, Gentle Hands has taken in children that come with sad and horrific stories of neglect, abuse and abandonment. We have seen healing, growth, and life restored in so many ways. The mission is lifesaving on so many levels and the results are children who learn they are valuable, they are worthy of love, of care, and of a future. They learn that there is hope.

This is what you can be involved in. Your prayers. Your Friendship. Your kindness makes a difference. With your help, we can ensure babies and children who come into our care can grow in a safe and supportive environment knowing their needs are provided for holistically. That means in addition to their physical, emotional, psychological, educational and medical needs, they have hope. Hope to be who they were created to be.
