Sisters Bring Food and Hope to Remote Villages in the Philippines

Women often eat last and least in countries facing conflict, famine and hunger, according to the World Food Programme. Women are also more likely to live in extreme poverty. More than half of the 821 million people in the world facing food insecurity are women and girls.

This story is part of a series highlighting the incredible women that bring Feed My Starving Children’s mission to life.

A group of special women are bringing hope to the Tiltilan Indigenous Community in a remote village in the Philippines.

Through FMSC’s food partner’s Risen Savior Missions and HAPAG-ASA, the Sisters of Servants of the Holy Spirit cook and distribute lifesaving MannaPack™ meals for 130 children in the community’s elementary school.

These children seldom eat two full meals in a day, especially during the rainy season that can last three to four months.

Often, children in this village live on root crops and bananas, and during heavy tropical rains they cannot go to their small farming area due to an impassable raging, swift-flowing river.

The Sisters also teach classes as part of their congregation’s program focus to help lift this community out of extreme poverty.
