Help Feed Starving Filipinos Living in Slums
A formerly unreached people group in the Philippines is living in abject poverty and in desperate need of basic necessities. For $3,530 you can help provide food and clothing for 100 Filipinos as missionaries continue to share the gospel with them.
An In-depth look
There is a place in the Philippines so desperate that its residents once called themselves “The Forgotten Community.” COVID lockdowns have destroyed their already fragile economy. Before we sent missionaries to them, they were an Unreached People Group. Now many of them have heard the gospel and a church of 80 people has been born. There are many single moms, widows and sickly people who are living in slums. They lack food, clothes and other essentials. For $3,530 you can help feed 100 desperate Filipinos. Your gift will also support our missionaries who will continue sharing the gospel and discipling the new believers. Through your compassionate donation today, will you help these people know that they are not forgotten?
80% of Unreached are living in poverty.
An Unreached People Group is any distinct ethnic group that is less than 2% Christian. There are about 7,000 UPGs in the world today, each distinct from one another by virtue of their culture, language or geographical location. 80% of unreached are living under severe poverty. You can help reach them by donating to meet their pressing needs today.
Frequently Asked Questions:
Does His Feet personally know the people featured in each Pressing Need?
All urgent needs that we present are for people in urgent or emergency need and those people are being ministered to by trusted partners of His Feet International or are for people whom we personally know. One of His Feet's unique positions is that we have spent much time in these countries and that our trusted partners and team members have worked with us for many years.
How long does it take before the "still needed" section reflects the donation I just gave?
After making a donation to a specific urgent need, within 24 hours your donation will be visible on the progress bar. If your donation completed or surpassed the $ amount then within 48 hours the need will be replaced with a similar or different urgent need. If your donation is more then the ask, the rest of your money will be handled prayerfully and diligently while being used for similar ministries and needs.
Can you guarantee that my donation will benefit the person/people mentioned in the Pressing Need?
Yes. When you are making a donation, the donation widget will have a list of specified areas that you can choose for your donation. When you specify the urgent need(s) in the donation widget your donation will be tagged in our accounting system that will identify it for that particular need. If, however, your gift is given, and that need has been met or an unlikely event causes us to not be able to give to that particular need your donation stays in the same ministry. For example, if you donated to provide medical care for a leprosy patient and the final cost is less than raised, we would use remainder for a different need within leprosy ministry.
His Feet International is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, and therefore must maintain complete discretion and control over the use of all contributions. Tax-deductible contributions to all His Feet appeals are solicited as preference gifts. His Feet is fully committed to honoring donors' preferences with the understanding that, under unusual circumstances, such gifts may be used for other charitable purposes.
Why is an urgent need previously funded posted again?
Medical needs are often similar for different leprosy patients, Disaster relief presents many similar needs. We send teams to leprosy colonies monthly, we may post the pressing need again after one month's need is met to raise the funds for the next month's team to go. Same thing for teams going to evangelize, disciple, and encourage believers amongst unreached people groups. Different national missionaries have similar needs such as travel funds, rent, and supplemental support for their families, and their kid's education.
