"Feed the Mind Project": Fight on poverty in the Philippines

"Feed the Mind" is a fundraising project that is founded by a group of Filipino nurses in Los Angeles. Poverty has always been a critic social problem in the Philippines. According to the statistics from the Philippines National Statistical Coordination Board, 25.8% of the population in the Philippines fell below the poverty line, which is per capital 10,534 pesos the first semester of 2014. It is an undeniable situation and we have to do something about it. We could give them fish and they'll be ok for a day. But when you give them hope, you give them a brighter future. 

Therefore, we partnered with Mary Queen of Heaven Missionaries and started this fundraising project that can provide educational assistance among destitute children and orphans in the Philippines especially in the remote areas and areas that were affected by the super typhoon. Education is a powerful tool to fight on poverty and lead people in poverty to possibilities and hope. We sincerely hope you can join us and bring hopes to the children and their families in those impoverished areas. If you would like to know more details about this project, you can reach out to our coordinator at: rjimera2002@yahoo.com
