Children’s Home - Building Purchase

$785 of $7,500 goal

Raised by 5 people in 7 months
Can you help us provide a permanent building?

WHAT?

Children's Hope is a children's home located in the southern Philippines.  We take care of 31 children full-time and 6 part-time by providing 1 hot meal a day and snacks before bedtime, provide school supplies and tutoring and other educational supplies.   Additionally, we provide medical assistance as needed.

These children are not orphans, but one or both of their parents are working overseas because there is no work available locally to support their families.

WHO?

Children’s Hope is operated by 100% volunteer staff, both in the USA and in the Philippines.

WHY?

We have leased the building where we are located for almost 11 years.   The owner has defaulted on the loan payment.  Working with the bank and the owner, we can purchase this for the unpaid balance of his mortgage and legal fees.   To summarize, we can purchase a property worth over $25,000 USD for approximately 1/4th of its value.

What would it accomplish?

In addition to the purchase at far below its value, it gives us a permanent building in the center of the area in which we are working.

In the past, it has been used as a refuge center in severe weather when the local nipa huts were destroyed.

Funds Needed

Due to the foreclosure situation, the bank has notified us that we have a limited time to complete the transaction before they must complete the foreclosure.

As any wise person would do, I'm sure you are wondering what exactly do we do for the children?

What do we do? Last year we did the following.
- 16,607 meals served.
- 3,120 snacks sent home, so they would have something to eat before they went to bed.
- 47 doctor visits.
- 1 hospitalization.
- 6,480 individual lessons tutored or helped
- 12 school uniforms and shoes provided
- Vitamin/mineral supplements for all children
- 480 lbs of supplies shipped, school supplies, OTC medicine, vitamins, first aid supplies, head lice kits, and Christmas gifts.
- Repairs were made to the building to keep it safe and secure.
We did all this on 46% of the fully funded budget. In other words, because we are not fully funded, we left out many needed services. If you would consider supporting with a monthly donation or a donation towards our current campaign, it would help far more than you can ever know.
For more information, please visit our website www.hopehomeandschool.org for more details.
