Home for the 100th Sheep Christmas Event and Feeding Support

As being done every year, our financial support was funded to a charity organization, Home for the 100th Sheep (an indigent community in Dasmarinas, Cavite consists of former street families in Manila relocated) run by a dedicating couple, Kaloi and Edna for their X’mas event. This year, AWH member Dr. Kanaji provided additional fund donation to support them further with their daily needs after the holiday season.

On December 10th, 2021, 108 children from Malaking-Bahay, Paliparan III, SaMada, Paliparan III and Sta. Cruz -1 were served with spaghetti, fried chicken and drinks. 18 volunteer mothers cooked the meal.

Kaloi and Edna responded to us :
We will utilize the rest of the fund on our usual children’s daily feeding from Monday to Friday all year round and normally we serve special feeding on Fridays.
Thank you! May the LORD our GOD bless each of you at Academy of World Healing Foundation.
A Blessed Merry Christmas and a Joyous Prosperous New Year!

Firewood for Camp Hope

The women and children of Camp Hope (nearby indigent squatter camp) came to the AWH site on December 6, 2021 to pick up chunks of firewood which will be used for cooking soybeans to make “taho” (tofu) to be sold outside. It is their mean of livelihood.
They joyfully carried the large chunks of firewood into the tricycle. Others hand-carried their pieces of firewood back to their camp nearby.

The theme was “New normal na Walang Iwanan: Karapatan ng Bawat Bata Ating Tutukan!”. (Translation: “Unity under the New Normal. We must uphold the rights of every child!”.)
Alfonso LCPC invited selected local indigent children with their mothers for the gift giving of hygiene kits and Jollibee meals at the venue site.

The other following activities were also awarded:

  1. Educational assistance for selected indigent children with disabilities

  • Kaysuyo
  • Pajo
  • Marahan 1
  • Luksuhin Ibaba
  • Sikat

Indigent Support

On December 15, 2020, AWH distributed 17 sacks filled with 272 pieces of  brown coconuts and homegrown ube yams to the three nearby indigent camps (Usting 1, 2 and Camp Hope).
The indigent settlers said that they will utilize the coconut milk to make popular Filipino rice desserts and other meals this coming Christmas and New Year season. 
They said that the cost of coconut milk increases during the holiday season due to high demand and this provision was highly appreciated.

Update on January 14, 2021

AWH delivered sacks of brown coconuts and bananas to Usting 1 & 2 in Alfonso. 
The indigent residents said they enjoy the tasty coconut milk which is added to their rice and vegetables meals. 
AWH harvested another bunch of bananas and decided to share them to the 2 camps. 
The children also enjoyed the bread we brought.

Update on January 29, 2021

Several chunks of logs were picked up by 3 residents from nearby indigent camp who are selling taho (tofu) for their livelihood. The firewood will be used to cook taho as their primary source of income to sustain the needs of their families. 

Update on March 5, 2021

AWH assisted the taho (tofu) vendors in Camp Hope with firewoods. 
The pieces of logs they picked up on March 5, 2021 are perfectly dried firewood logs were picked up to cook soybeans for taho making. 
It was much appreciated especially during the Covid-10 pandemic.

Update on May 14, 2021

Three residents of Camp Hope (nearby indigent settlers) visited again and picked up bundles of large firewood.
The firewood will be used for cooking soybean to make taho (tofu). In this pandemic they use firewood even for cooking their meals since the LPG gas cost has soared.
Their activities for work were limited when the strictest Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ) status was declared last month and made no income.

Automotive Electronic Technician

An auto electronic technician in Mendez, Tagaytay, has a living partner and 1 year old daughter. On electronic matters he often repairs the Mercedez Benz of AWH which runs on used cooking oil.

One day he told that his baby girl underwent heart surgery through catheter which costed him almost a million pesos. The girl is all right now but he had to sell his shop. He now does repair jobs at his rent house.

He is originally from Iloilo, Aklan and honest person. We wanted to assist his livelihood. He had several multimeters so we decided to try finding an automotive code reader/scanner. It usually is expensive and initially we thought about buying a second hand unit in Japan. However, we found a very inexpensive one from China in the Philippines. Initially, we were skeptical if it really works but decided to give it a try as it was in very affordable range.

On May 27, 2016, the code reader was given to him. He tested on some cars and confirmed it works although he has to get himself familiarized with it. It does not work on all the cars but he said it would be useful.
