Poverty in the Philippines

Did you know that women are the best solution to reduce hunger and poverty? Because women can do multi-tasking! Women can plant, reap, sow and cook food.

It is estimated that 95% of the world's hungry are caused by poverty. The Philippines belongs to the third world country - still a "developing" country. Over 70% of Filipinos are too poor to buy food, that also means the lack material wealth and are struggling to survive.

Most Filipinos are:
  • Hungry
  • Lack of shelter
  • sick
  • can't go to school
  • powerless
  • lack of resources
  • jobless
This is a call to change.. so that many can eat, have shelter, clothing, education, good health, voice and freedom.

Act now. And share what you have.
