Photo Diary – September 21, 2012 at 10:37PM

This photo was featured in Yahoo as one of the “pictures of the day”. What is sad is that many of our sponsor kids live in “squatter” areas or were relocated from squatter areas.

I believe that children are innocent, precious and deserve a chance … In the Philippines, squatters are common as there is huge population and few jobs…
