We work with a Christian charity called Mercy in Action, which works with the poorest of the poor in the city of Cebu in the Philippines. The charity sponsors children through education and is also involved in many other local projects in partnership with churches and local government in the Philippines.
Current projects include a drop-in centre for kids living on the streets. Here they can get a hot meal, study English and maths to help them back into school, and receive basic medical care. The centre also tries to reunite them with families where possible.
Long-term accommodation is provided for a number of children, with a focus on creating a loving family environment for them.
There is a plan for a team of volunteers from New Life to travel out to Cebu in 2018. They will spend two weeks working with Mercy in Action.
