Visit to the Philippines April 2016

Early in 2016 we had a special breakfast were we listened to a young Filipino woman speak about the remarkable impact receiving sponsorship for education has made to herself, her family and community. Following this breakfast several members decided to sponsor children from this region. In April 2016, nine members travelled to the Abkasa region of the Philippines to visit their sponsored children as well as provide training and other assistance to the local community centre. The members went to give their hearts and minds, and whilst doing so received more than they could have imagined.
