Our Philippine ministry is known as Unsheltered International Philippines, Inc. and is headquartered in Bacolod City on the Island of Negros Occidental.The primary focus of this ministry is bringing help and hope to the children who live on the streets and in squatter villages. We carry out our purpose in many ways.

Weekly Meal Centers

We have 13 meal centers where we minister to hungry children every week. The children who attend receive a meal and a Bible lesson tailored just for them. They also sing songs and receive first aid treatment as needed. Learn more here.

Street Children Ministry

Our staff and ministry partners go to the city streets three times each week. They take a simple meal, their first aid backpacks, and lots of compassion.

Each trip out to the streets they encounter new and challenging situations. Sometimes they encounter completely helpless children who are abandoned. Sometimes they interact with older kids who are gang members and hooked on cheap, homemade drugs. Other times, they minister to entire families who are destitute and everything they own is in a few little boxes or bags.

 There is, however, one thing that remains consistent: they minister with compassion and mercy in the name of Jesus. Through this late night outreach, we have rescued young girls from prostitution, helped families survive and rescued children from abandonment.

Medical Care

One of the most rewarding things we do is to provide medical care for the extreme poor in the Philippines. Because we have some Filipino doctors who help at little to no charge, we can make a real difference in sick people’s lives. Sometimes it is basic first aid, other times it is surgery or hospitalization that is needed.

We have a fund that is designated for medical needs and that fund has already saved several lives. We have helped children suffering from dysentery, dehydration, malnutrition, bacterial infection and preventable diseases.

Three Phase Plan

Our future plans include the building of an orphanage and school in Toboso. We are currently looking for the best property in the area for us to purchase. Once the land is purchased and the additional money is raised, we will be able to begin construction.

Plans include a dormitory for up to 25 children, a dining hall and kitchen, a school, and more. Please pray for the needs as we are currently raising the needed funds for this project.
