Religious Faith for the Poor

Caritas Manila is one of the largest church-based nonprofit organizations in the Philippines. Through their programs and services, they aim to concretize the love of God among the poor, the weak, and the vulnerable -the “least, last and lost” in society. Caritas Manila’s core programs are geared toward integral human, spiritual, and socio-economic development of the poor. Caritas Manila has always believed that meaningful assistance must be an empowering process. Most of their programs are designed to transform people from poverty and dependence to self-reliance with dignity.

HELP THE HUNGRY AND MALNOURISHED  2021

Caritas Manila begins 2021 in solidarity with the poor especially families and children heavily affected by the pandemic. Through this campaign, we aim to provide food assistance to 3,000 indigent families (15,000 individuals) in 15 identified feeding centers in Metro Manila for 6 months. Food supply will be sourced from local farmers. Educational toys for 1,000 indigent children (6 months to 12 years old) will also be distributed.

These individuals have experienced a lack of food to eat for at least once in three months. To address hunger, Caritas will present these donation packages for indigent families:

1 Cavan of Rice – US$41/ Php 2,000
Assorted Fruits and Vegetables – US$10/ Php 500

Children from these indigent families are also at risk of malnutrition adding to the current 30 % of children aged 5 and below in the country suffer from this. Here are the donation packages to help prevent malnutrition of these children through the program:

Meal Subsidy – US$37/ Php 1,800 (can feed one child for 120 days)
Nutrition Kit – US$4/ Php 200 (food keeper and tumbler)
Grooming Kit – US$8/ Php 400 (hygiene essentials)
Medical Assistance – US$12/ Php 600 (medical treatment, medicine supplement subsidy)

Caritas Manila DAMAYAN GC Ayuda 2021: Bumili ayon sa inyong pangangailangan!

As community pantries spread in the country, Caritas Manila compliments by reaching out to the identified poorest families with our Oplan DAMAYAN GC AYUDA 2021. Caritas will provide Php 1,000 worth of gift certificates to the poorest families that they can redeem in Puregold, Super 8, or SaveMore. It’s more practical to provide these gift certificates as the poor are given freedom of choice to purchase their basic needs.

Cash donations will be used to purchase these gift certificates. This project will be effective especially during the lockdown to help the poor survive the health and socioeconomic effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Caritas Manila plans to raise 50 million pesos to serve the food and emergency needs of 50,000 identified poorest families in Mega Manila or NCR plus.

May God continue to bless you!

“For the CHARITY of God impels us.” – 2 Corinthians 5:14
