Our actions in the Philippines

Despite a high economic growth rate of 6.4% per year in 2016 (World Bank), 20% of the poorest Filipinos have only 5% of the total income, and social inequalities are rampant in the country. In the Philippines, 40 million people live below the poverty line, including 13 million children, many of whom live in the slums of Cebu Island.
