You Are Inspirational, Gentle Hands


Photobucket

Gentle Hands is a Christian social welfare agency located in Metro Manila. They rescue children who are abandoned, abused, or malnourished. They are also a licensed foster/adoption agency. To learn more about it, go to http://www.gentlehands.org/

Here are some of the recent "rescues" and "adoptions" as shown in the Gentle Hands FB page.





I am inspired that Gentle Hands is run by non-Filipino missionaries who are called by God to work here in the Philippines, to help this specific group of people. They bring hope to some of the most depressed families and children in our society.

Most of the time, we Filipinos, don't have much time to help out in our community, much more these abandoned children. As a blogger, I have realized that we don't need to stay behind our blogs, but we can actually start to go beyond blogging. Maybe we can start to donate, or help them buy some of their needs.

dapat ung mga loot bags na binibigay sa atin sa mga events, bigay natin sa kanila. better yet, ung mga companies na lang magbigay sa kanila directly.
