Greetings from the Philippines!
We hope that you’ve had a great start for this year. Time is really flying so fast and we are on the 2nd month of this year. I know that there are a lot of exciting things that will happen this year. We are so glad that you have been with us all this time. Valentine’s Day is coming and we hope that this day will be filled with love and that you will always find happiness with your families.
Our Meals at School program has been doing so good. We still continue to feed the children in Sua Elementary School in Camarines Sur and in Pototan Elementary School in Iloilo. That is more than 600 children we are feeding every day.
There have been a lot of significant changes in the lives of the children and the families who benefit from our program. The parents say their children have increased in weight and they are more active in school and more motivated to study.
The children want to wish you a happy New Year and they are handing letters to us expressing their gratitude. Here are some of the words from these children.
“I am Adrian Bautista, a grade 4 student in Sua Elementary School. My favorite meal in the feeding is macaroni soup. Thank you friends for giving us the meals in school everyday.”
“I am Ken, grade 1 student from Sua Elementary School. I love the feeding every day and my mother volunteers to cook. My mother is so happy to tell me that I have gained weight from 15 kilos to 25 kilos since I participated in the feeding. Thank you for helping us!”
“Hello, I am Joemarie Lique, 12 years old. My father is a laborer in a construction site and my mother stays at home, the feeding program helps us a lot because most of the time, my parents cannot buy food for us. Thank you for your help”
“How are you? I am Sherelle, I love to study and I love to learn things in school. Life in the Philippines is hard but we are happy. Thank you so much for the help that you have been giving us.”
These are just some of the message of thanks that we always get from the children. They all love to be in school and the help that you have been extending to finance the Meals at School Program of Give Children Hope makes a great difference in their lives.
We thank you for all your help. We hope that we could continue to support and change the lives of these children for the better.

May you all have a blessed February! Our love for all of you!
