WOW Philippines

WOW partners with the Durian Project in Manila, providing an education programme for children who live with their families in tombs in the local cemetery. These families are homeless, but have set up makeshift homes inside the tombs which at least provide a dry place to live. The poverty is extreme, and the conditions shocking, with many of the parents addicted to alcohol or drugs. The Durian project provides before and after school education to help the children improve their grades, and provides the children with a good meal. This is a Christian project, sharing hope and love with the children.
