Casa Esperanza of Angels (CEA) Foundation’s orphanage facility project in Tanjay City, Philippines is our very first mission initiative to help alleviate the plight of orphans in this country.
The Philippines (pop. 100 million) is an archipelago of about 7,100 islands in southeast Asia. This 300,000 sq. km. island nation is located 11,736 kms. due south west of Los Angeles across the Pacific Ocean.
There are approximately two million orphans in the Philippines today, according to the most recent estimates by the Philippines Department of Social Welfare And Development (DSWD) and by various international humanitarian agencies. Many of these children are basically on their own, living on the streets of Manila, Cebu, Davao, and other urban locations across the country.
About Casa Esperanza of Angels
Tanjay City is a town in the province of Negros Oriental, about 31 kms north of the provincial capital of Dumaguete City. The orphan care facility currently being built here is designed to take in and care for orphans, abused or abandoned children, and in certain cases, those suffering from extreme hunger and poverty. The ongoing first phase of construction includes building of the exterior security fence and the first of several children’s homes inside the center.
Founded by our dear friends, the hard-working husband-and-wife tandem of Ronald and Georgia Brown, the Casa Esperanza of Angels facility is rooted on the idea of providing a family-like environment to the orphans under its care. To accomplish this design, small groups of children will be housed in separate family houses, each directly supervised and cared for by house parents. The children and house parents in one house will form a single family unit. As Gigi Brown noted, the house parents will be an integral part – the so-called “backbone” – in running the facility and in bringing up the children.
CEA is now in the first stages of construction and still needs your prayers, support, and donations to complete all the planned structures and operate the facility in the near future. They also have a number of activities scheduled by way of online advocacy and community outreach to create goodwill among their new neighbors in the city. Please get in touch with Casa Esperanza of Angels to learn more about their project, make a donation, or volunteer for their activities and initiatives.
