The Chalice sponsor site in Tondo, Philippines provides care to disadvantaged children.
Chalice Critical Needs - Families Watch as Fire Destroys their Living Space in Tondo, PhilippinesThese children belong to families that are classified as Survival Level (monthly income below the poverty line) and live in unsafe and insecure areas. Most of these families do not earn enough to provide for their children's most basic needs, let alone provide for other needs like education.

On August 18, an explosion from an undetermined source resulted in a fire that spread through the temporary housing of some 750 families, including the families of 37 sponsored children from our Tondo Sponsor Site. They lost their homes and most of their possessions and tragically, two young siblings of one of our sponsored children lost their lives.

Each family of our sponsored children will be allotted a small space in the district, but will start out with basically nothing. The immediate needs of the families vary, but include construction materials and household items. They are in desperate need of assistance.

Our Sponsor Site Director has come to Chalice for help with these basic needs by providing each family with a small contribution of approximately $74 towards the purchase ofthese materials. Cost in total for the 37 families is $2732.
