Feeding The Children of Abatex, A Dump Site Community In The Philippines
We Care for Humanity (501(c)3) organization headed by Founder and President Maria Amor and Megaworld Global Estate Inc. held a feeding program in Abatex, Montalban Rizal, Philippines last August 27, 2013.
Abatex is a dumpsite community located in Montalban, Rizal Philippines where about 100 families are squatting for more than a decade. The community's source of income is mainly filtering the garbage for recyclable materials.
Sadly, even children from age 2 to 12 years old are exposed to this kind of work and are compelled to help their parents due to poverty.
We Care for Humanity officially adopted Abatex as one of its beneficiaries. Yearly, WCH visits this community twice a year to help transform their surrounding into a more livable, comfortable and sustainable community. There are about 100 children that are out of school, 75% percent of the parents are out of jobs and 60% of the community are children who are exposed to dirt and germs everyday.
The stench is unbearable and the poverty is even agonizing but the faith of the Abatex people is truly remarkable. In the midst of their excruciating situation, they first asked for a church to house their loyalty to God.
