WELCOME TO MARIPHIL CHILDREN'S VILLAGE
Our utmost concern and motivation: to offer children a fair future full of opportunities.
Our goal is to give Philippine street children the opportunity of leading a better life in the future. MARIPHILChildren's Village on the island of Mindanao helps children in need by offering them a new home and the possibility of experiencing what should be a matter of course for all children: a loving familiar environment, responsible attachment figures (caring adults), sufficient and healthy food, health care, psycho-social support, education, promotion of self development and much much more. Sadly this is not reality for countless children who are exposed to the most terrible conditions imaginable and that on a daily basis.
The majority of the Philippine children that we are taking care of have had their lives shaped by exposure to and experience of neglect, maltreatment and sexual abuse in their original families. Many of these children flee to the streets for refuge and are constantly faced with the daily fight for survival.
These children need our help! Support our work and give children the gift of a future.
