120 Days Feeding Program in Kasiglahan

In the midst of pandemic, flood and unpredictable challenging weather condition and situation, the 120 days feeding program in Kasiglahan is finally completed last September 10, 2021. The children came joyful and dressed up, accompanied by either parent and relative as scheduled. Each child received food pack and a gift of new pair of slipper.
It seems the day had passed by so fast that the beneficiaries, partner and the volunteers are in disbelief that the feeding program is already completed.
Thankful for the support of church partner God’s Fold, The Sheep of Christ Jesus spearheaded by Pastor Hermes Duran and wife as they continue feeding the physical and spiritual needs of beneficiaries, their families and the community.

Food Aid to ABC Sponsored Families (Covid 19 Pandemic)
August 16 – 19, 2021
The Covid 19 Pandemic has adversely affected the lives of the Filipino family, resulting in significant loss in employment and income. As breadwinner lost their jobs, many poor families found themselves not having enough food on the table. Their inability to buy food has put them to risk of hunger to the extent that they go the whole day without eating.
Thanks to ABC Children’s Aid for their enduring concern for the plight of the sponsored families during this pandemic. They have provided food aid to 470 sponsored families in the form of a sack of rice (25 kilos) and a bag of groceries to each of the family. Such gesture has put a smile to every family as they receive it.
