Hapag-Asa Feeding Program

Tita Malou Cosico Anora shared with me about the Hapag-Asa Feeding Program that they’re implementing at Shepherd of Love Church in Don Antonio. They’re currently feeding 142 kids and some kids say they feel better now, and parents share that their kids started to do better in school and look healthier. This is due to the fact that the Vita Meal made of Rice and Lentils is packed with Vitamins and Minerals essential to a child’s development. Being a Full Gospel Christian church implementing this program, the kids are getting fed both their physical and spiritual needs. Kids are shared moral values such as the importance of good hygiene, praying, sharing and more. She got the Vita Meal through the Bethesda International Ministries, one of the Hapag-Asa’s Implementing partners

Please watch the following video and understand what hunger means like to these kids and what damage it can do “permanently” on them.

We desire to be an implementor of this program in Palawan, we have identified a location where kids look very small for their ages, and the parents confirm that Malnutrition is a concern in their area due to difficulty of transportation to town/inaccessibility, right now, the place is reachable  by a One (1) hour speedboat or almost two (2) hours motorized boat ride from town or  by land, it is a  One (1) hour drive up to where a car can go then trekking two hours and 30 minutes to where about 3oo families who are in dire need for nutritious food and medical care live. Food they get is primarily from what they can grow and what they can fish, and given the long rainy seasons (el nina) or too dry (el nino), having the right food mix can be very difficult.  They’re visited by the town’s health worker once a month which I believe is not enough to address the real needs of the people especially children

Dinner time for them

Dinner for them is fish and rice. Lacking a lot of protein for proper development

Please pray with my husband, Doug and I as we respond to what we believe God has placed in our hearts to do, to be a channel of blessings to this community in Palawan by facilitating feeding programs, medical missions, livelihood program and sharing the love of Jesus and His plan for us.

Join us as we share our blessings of time, good health, resources and talents God has blessed us with.

As the Real Life Foundation says. Helping others never goes out of style!
