Project 2 - Philippines
Street Tea was started after a visit to Manila where the grinding poverty is obvious and far too many children and young people live on the streets.
We currently support a small group of single, unemployed mothers and their children keeping them together as a family and providing them with food, nutritional supplements, emergency health care and general living costs. We also ensure their children have what they need to attend school - pre-Covid-19; school has been severely interrupted over the last year with schools mainly staying closed the whole time.
In 2021 we will be making regular contributions to Childhope Philippines, a charity that works with children and families living on the streets in Metro Manila, running a mobile health clinic, educational workshops and providing general protection.
