To be honest, there is a big world out there and there is a bigger need to be solved. For Rise Above, we have been trying to reach out to the many families who need our help. And it’s not just in Cebu City, but as well as to those who are in need outside the city.
Some of the families that we help are in Moalboal, south of Cebu, which we take time to visit almost every month.
Last month, we went out to Moalboal to visit our sponsored kids with some of the volunteers from France. It was a fun team to be with and they were so happy that they were able to help out in delivering grocery items to our sponsored kids living there.
And of course, it wouldn’t be fun without a little bit of diving, right? We were in Moalboal, so why not seize the moment?!
We were also able to visit Junevieve in their house. (Read about Junevieve’s extraordinary feat here.) We were able to give out the clothes that we bought which were donated to us. The kids were really happy.
Junevieve is now on her third year in college education and will be doing her internship soon. It is such an inspiration to us.
Yes, life is tougher in the city but so as anywhere else. And we are just glad that we can reach out even to those who need help in the province, through your donations.
If you want to donate for our cause, please do so through our DONATE page. We also accept donations of goods and other materials necessary for the work that we do.
You can also sponsor a child’s education through a very small support every month. With just $40 per month, you can send a child to school with complete school materials and food every day. That’s less than $2 per day!
