ACTS29 Family Day 2014 is Just a Few Days Away!

There are families in the Philippines that earn their keep by collecting goods from garbage sites.  The largest open dumpsite in the Philippines to date is Payatas with over 2,000 scavengers living in this community.  With no decent homes and no access to clean air and safe drinking water, they face health problems, particularly tuberculosis (TB) and
it’s the children that suffer the most.

We are very blessed to have met ACTS29, a Singapore-based charity group that offers medical support (TB screening and medication) and educational projects (scholarship programme and formation homes) to help underprivileged children and their families from Payatas escape from their reliance on trash-picking as their livelihood.

With constant tuition and monitoring, deserving children get sent to school through the generosity of our ACTS29 benefactors.

On 27 September 2014 (Saturday), we are having the ACTS29 Family Day 2014, a charity lunch event for our over 30 scholars and their families to offer them encouragement and each scholar will get their own school kit (bag plus school supplies they need) during the event.
