I help orphans and street children in the Philippines since many years. We have a few babies with Cheilognathopalatoschisis (open pine and palate). They need to be operated as soon as possible. Please see the added pictures. This children are punished for life if they have this marks in theyr face. Please help me that this children can have a normals life.

Please, help us helping this poorest of the poor. As you can see, we do no need any luxury, our shower is outside, we have simple rooms. Privacy is only protectet by a plastic awning, where we also wash our clothes. But we are content if our children have two meals a day, education, proper clothes, and of course our love.
The house stand into water to prevent mise, snakes and other animals entering. Cleaning the water ones a week is necessary, to keep everything nice and clean. The children are helping with fun (see picture).
As you see on the video, also very poor children have the right to have fun. If they look like the others they are accepted. 5 of this children have had operations and now they look like every one else and no one will tell them "you witch, or you are from devil".
We take care of the baby, and the mother can stay in our orphanage and go to school. May first time in her life. And in the future we hope she will be able to take care of her daughter. As Aileen, we have a lot of girls in the same situation. Our youngest is 12 years old, violated from her own father, she was pregnant with twins (see picture 2). Her mother brought her to us, asking for help. We will help as much as we can, but first this father have to be announced to the police. There is a new law say that violation is prohibited and violaters can be condemned to prison for up to 10 years. This is not enough, this girls are suffering theyr life long. But at least this three babies have a good future.
As I was living in Asia with my family in the 80th last century, we visited the Philippines for holidays. We saw hungry children in the street, without clothes and shelter. I started giving them T-Shirts, trousers, babybooks and one cup of rice per day. Over the years it became a orphanage.
We have now a few babys with havy deformity, which must be operated. And for this I need your help, please!
Please read my text and watch the pictures. Our children have havy traumatas, but they learn to be happy with us, and: Also see on my website how our daily work is going on:
THANK YOU SO MUCH - MARAMING SALAMAT PO!
