Kids need and crave loving and secure interaction with family. So, until they are officially placed in a family, we are their family. Taking a long-term approach to loving these children, we combine physical, social, economic and spiritual care together to help them experience every possible level of love and guidance needed until that special day they are adopted into their forever home. That is our ultimate vision.
“Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.”
“For in You the fatherless find compassion.”
“Defend the cause of the weak and fatherless; maintain the rights of the poor and oppressed.”
“…for I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in; I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me….”
We desire to do all that we do in love, empowered by faith in our Lord Jesus Christ. POF is a Christ-centered evangelical ministry. As a result, doing nothing is not an option – He is the ultimate remedy for all forms of suffering, so we carry that banner to rescue and love Filipino orphans.
We desire to work together with local churches in the Philippines, with a spirit of humility and accountability, impacting communities by helping the Philippines most vulnerable children.
We desire to be transparent in all our labor and with all resources entrusted to us. We will build trust each and every day by conducting ourselves in a way that enables others to trust our work with confidence. “May integrity and uprightness protect me, because my hope, Lord, is in you.” Psalm 25:21
We desire to work and act with compassion toward Filipino orphans, the most vulnerable children in the country. Compassion means “to suffer with,” or ‘action with mercy.” At the very heart of all that we do is compassion.
