Various studies have shown that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It provides us energy and improves our concentration for our day’s activities. However, for children living in extreme poverty, breakfast can be their one and only meal. A meal that can define if they will survive or not. This is a heartbreaking reality that Project PEARLS aims to change. Through our Feeding Programs, we want to provide a delicious and nutritious meal to children to help decrease the incidence of malnourishment.
Project PEARLS launched the “Daily Soup Kitchen” in July 2015 to provide healthy meals to the most malnourished kids and to ensure that they do not go to school with empty stomachs. Our daily minimum budget to feed around 300 children is $150.00 or Php 6000 (Php 30 per child).
We are inviting everyone to celebrate their special event, or just share their blessings by sponsoring our feeding programs. Any kind of support, cash or in-kind donations (such as rice, canned goods, noodles, milk, children’s vitamins, sugar, fresh eggs, vegetables, fruit), will go a along way in changing the lives of the children. To sponsor a feeding or donate food donations, send us an e-mail!
The photos below show why we have a Feeding Program in one of the poorest (and dirtiest) communities in Tondo, Manila. The common meal there is “pagpag”, which is recycled food from the garbage. Please support our Feeding Program and together, let’s stop child hunger and mortality. Read “The Tragic Story of Marco” and find out why we launched the Daily Soup Kitchen Program.
