PCF would like to thank all our supporters again for their thoughts and prayers at this terrible time for the Philippines we have some families who have been effected by flooding following the storm and have been offering them food relief, however, the worst hit areas are much further South than our work.
We are doing our best to ascertain information from organisations on the ground about the best ways to help and we will keep you all updated.
PCF would like to give special recognition to one of our young supporters - Ellie Williamson who managed to collect a HUGE amount of RINGPULLS totalling a massive 33kg in weight!!!!
Huge thanks to Ellie who’s hard work will help so many people!
Each ringpull amounts to about 4p in value to the work of PCF, so Ellie’s hard work has totalled around £4000 worth!
Great work Ellie
Maybe Ellie’s collecting will inspire others to do the same….!
Emergency Relief on Tondo Dumpsite
At 11.30pm on September 20th a ferocious fire blazed through the dumpsite for two and half hours causing devastation for over 350 families after an oil lamp was accidently thrown during a family argument.
One five year old child burnt to death trapped in her home and another five year old child is missing. 200 homes were burnt to the ground with all personal possessions lost. PCF has opened up our community health clinic on the dumpsite as a small evacuation centre for the fire victims but many families still in deep shock have chosen to stay on the site of their burnt homes living under tarpaulin so they can secure the space where their home was.
PCF desperately needs donations to build basic shelters, purchase charcoal stoves, bed rolls and bedding, food parcels and medical supplies. Any donation will help, no matter how small.
Please make a donation HERE or by calling 01489 790219.

Binhi Literacy Program for PCF Kids
To produce more competitive and literate students, PCF adapted the Binhi Literacy Program through the funding of Lao Foundation.
Binhi Literacy Program envisions that every Filipino child in school is learning well. They are to provide English learning support to children in marginalized areas by creating learning kits inspired by proven teaching methodologies and recruiting and training community based volunteers as teachers.
The program will run for 6 months and aims to teach the children basic literacy skills that will positively impact their learning skills. Students from Grades 1 and 2 which accounts to a number of 50 has been participating in this noble endeavor since July 8.
In an interview, Anita Sarnicula Principal of PCF expressed her deepest gratitude in this Literacy Program. “The D & L provided English literacy program to grades 1 and 2 through Binhi Foundation. The advocacy of the program among children is to develop reading with comprehension and to reinforce multiple intelligence through workbooks as well as learning guides to teachers designed for the purpose. Over the years, PCF has been doing its best to improve its procedures in educating less fortunate children of Tondo and Navotas. With the help of D & L we can greatly improve. Thank you very much for allowing us to be part of BINHI English Literacy Program!”

Last May 10, the group of Etihad Airways visited Philippine Christian Foundation as part of its Corporate Social Responsibility.
The group flew all the way from Abu Dhabi and brought joy to the kids through their feeding program. They also donated books, bags, shoes from their different departments and an amount of Php 72,000.00 for the 17 sacks of rice and uniforms of the students. The group in return was serenaded by the budding PCF Children’s Choir who sang in their angelic voices songs like So Happy Together and Atin Cu Pung Singsing.
According to Luzelle Boado, their will to help organize such event is indeed a great contribution.
It rained books and balls at PCF last May 2!
Thanks to Gloria Wu and her kids’ foundation, “Just for Kicks”, PCF kids now have new set of balls. The balls even have writings to inspire them to do good in sports and life. Along with the books, Mark Granic of Scholastic Books donated phonic workbooks which were very much appreciated by the kids.
The smiles on the kids faces were most precious that moment.
