In the Philippines we have established several feeding programs that provide a nutritious meal to 1000+children a month on the islands of Leyte and Samar. The Philippine feeding programs are directed by Larry Womack. A trained staff assist in taking food into the Filipino villages. While the food is being prepared for the children they are offered a chance to sing and hear Bible stories. It is life changing to see these kids standing in the mud waiting to get a bag of food and singing “God is so good ”. With 85 percent of the Philippine population living in poverty, with an annual income of about $600.00, the food given to the children is not supplemental food, but meals they would not have if The Hope Foundation did not supply them.
