Angel: Saved Just in Time

Angel: Saved Just in Time

“…do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you…” – Isaiah 41:10

One-year old Angel lives deep in the mountains of the Philippines in a very isolated community. Her mother died when she was only a few days old. Her father couldn’t care for her. It was a very tough situation.

Angel’s Uncle Berto and Aunt Mena brought her into their small home. They had no way to give Angel the nutrients she needed, and they quickly became concerned about their niece’s health.

Ribs protruded from Angel’s chest. Loose skin sagged from her arms. She was drastically underweight at only nine pounds and terribly frail.

They had no electricity or running water. Their nearest water source was a half mile trek down the mountain. They were grateful when the rains came so they could collect the rainwater.

“Berto and Mena feared that Angel would not recover. They felt helpless, because they had very little resources to purchase nutritious food.” – International Care Ministries (ICM), FMSC food partner

When ICM’s nutrition team came to their small, dusty village and met Angel, she was extremely malnourished, pale and lifeless. They put her in their feeding program. She started eating FMSC MannaPack™ meals every day.

After just eight weeks, Angel grew taller and gained almost five pounds! The nutritious meals restored her energy. This sickly toddler was renewed. She is now a healthy, smiling little girl.

Angel’s aunt was extremely relieved. “I am thankful to FMSC for helping Angel regain her health,” she said. “The MannaPacks helped Angel gain weight and recover.”
Today, seven months later, she weighs 32 pounds!

Without FMSC meals, Angel might not have survived. Because you stepped in, Angel’s life was saved just in time.


“I thought her condition was hopeless. I am so thankful for you.” – Aunt Mena
