Every year, sponsors and donors provide life-changing support for children and families in the Philippines.
In the slum communities of Manila, it’s not uncommon for families of ten or more to live together in less than 200 square feet.... Limited jobs force parents to sometimes seek work in neighboring cities, leaving children vulnerable to neglect or exploitation. Stigma against unwed pregnancy and mental health also compels many women to relinquish their babies for adoption.
With the support of Holt donors like you, struggling parents receive help to care for their children, including educational and nutritional support through Holt's programs. Children growing up without families are given proper care until they are able to join permanent, loving families through adoption.
