Here is what I do on my end to help others and anyone who wants to help can be assured that 100% of the amount donated goes directly to those in need as I am doing this out of love for my fellow man. There are no administrative costs, and the Mindanao project is 100% self supported with all profits going to the education of its employees and the children on the streets.

Want to see just how far a little money can go towards helping the street children here in Davao?
$25 will provide a medical screening and up to one month of medications needed for a child. (Many of the infants and very young children I have encountered appear to need immediate medical check ups and treatment)
$50 will provide basic dental care for 5 children.(This includes a thorough check-up, cleaning, and filling of up to two cavities.)
$50 will provide 100 meals for the children. (Today alone I provided meals for over 45 children which consisted of chicken, rice, gravy, and pineapple Juice. Several other children showed up late, but unfortunately I had to draw the line somewhere.)
$50 will provide 100 pairs of sandals. (Here kids wear their sandals until they have holes in the bottom and that exposes them to worms and other hazards in the ground that can cause infection and discomfort. Sandals are desperately needed and very inexpensive.)
$35 can provide school supplies and school uniforms which are required to attend the free public schools. This is all that prevents many of these children from attending school. A single donation of $35 will give a child the opportunity to attend school.
Included in a donation of $35:
Uniform including socks and black shoes
pocket English dictionaries
colored construction paper
