General

  • Mission:
  • Our mission is to serve as a catalyst of change in the lives of poor Filipinos, especially children, who experience hunger and poverty in the Philippines, and others who have very limited or no access to basic resources needed to sustain normal or decent living.

  • History:
  • The organization was formed by the founder, Jackie Maraya, who herself has first-hand experience with hunger and poverty. Before coming to the U.S., Jackie and her family struggled to afford food when they lived in the Philippines. Even when there was something to eat, it was not enough to feed the whole family. The hunger pains never stopped, but the sense of hope never ceased.

    With an opportunity to come to America, through sponsorship by a relative who lived in the U.S., there was that hope. After waiting about 10 years to finally make it to the U.S., and now living here for more than thirty years, Jackie and her family continue to appreciate being able to eat every day. However, they have not forgotten where they came from, and they certainly still remember the Filipinos who continue to experience hunger.

    Therefore, in April 2011, even with little money and meager resources, she began purchasing discounted items (such as perishable canned foods, school supplies, books, clothes, toys, toiletries, and other needed basic necessities), and sent them through an international shipper, every month, for distribution to needy children in the Philippines. In collaboration with a trust church contact, she passionately initiated this effort in a small poor, rural area in the Philippines, where children were starving.
