Funding Objective: $2000
Days left

From my mother, Lourdes Letrondo Wing:

"I came to Canada as a 21-yr old new Nursing graduate in 1966. As a Canadian citizen, I worked in various fields of healthcare in Saskatchewan, Ontario, Alberta and British Columbia. I got married, raised a family, and single-handedly repatriated and helped establish other members of my large family to Canada from the Philippines. Now retired and spending half the time in our retirement home in the island of Cebu, Philippines, my nurturing spirit has compelled me to take care of the poor and disadvantaged neighbors in Cebu. As a Canadian citizen I feel blessed and proud to be part of this rich and great country, with it's diversity and yet keeping it's own unique identity as a nation.

To share our blessings, my husband and I have embarked on a mission of alleviating hunger among the poor children of our neighborhood. We provide the supplies and volunteer parents cook the meal. For the past 4 years, the children we feed weekly grew from 25-80. Currently, our program have expanded to teaching mothers to sew to earn livelihood and providing a small library to introduce children to a love for reading. I have also partnered with an organization, Quota International of Southwest Cebu.

Quota International, Inc. is an international service organization that provides basic needs to women, children, the deaf, hard-of-hearing, and the speech-impaired in communities around the world.

They donated funds to buy rice for the feeding program and an electric sewing machine for our livelihood program. Our wish is raise funds to buy 3-4 more sewing machines for the 10 mothers who attend our program and more cash for food. Our goal is to raise at least $2000.00 by mid September when we return to Alegria, Cebu.
We appeal to your kind and sharing spirit to achieve our goal.
Thank you and God bless."
