GoalThe goal of this project is to help 4 Christian mission centers in the Philippines minister to women and children struggling with poverty and unemployment.
SummaryThis White Cross project seeks to raise $7,843 annually for 4 Christian Mission Centers.
DescriptionWhite Cross supports four Christian centers in the Philippines: The Antique Christian Center, Development Ministries, Veterans Village Family and Community Center and Convention of the Philippine Baptist Churches. These are safe places where women and children affected by poverty can receive help. They offer before and after school programs for children and job training for their mothers. These programs are in need of basic supplies that will be combined into kits for baby layettes, sewing, basic health and hygiene and school supplies. This project will improve the lives of the dozens of families who come to the centers for material help and spiritual guidance. Please share this information with others in your community and in your church family.
