Children Of God

HELP US. A group of children Rosemary Campaner, 11; Liza Francisco, 8; and Ar Jamang, 5, sell fish rather than go to school because of extreme poverty in Zamboanga City in the southern Philippines. They say their families cannot afford to send them to school and are so poor that they help make a living to feed their siblings.

We are accepting donations for the poor children of Zamboanga City, especially those in Lumbangan village (see No Feast For The Yuletide)where the government garbage dump is located.

Lumbangan people basically need medicines for fever and cough, antituberculosis, multivitamins for the children, dust masks and gloves.

We welcome other donations, such as old books and other reading materials, including Bible and Quoran, used clothes and condoms for the city's slum.

You can send your donations to Zamboanga Journal / Al Jacinto 53-B, Alfaro St., Tetuan, Zamboanga City, Philippines 7000

We will send you photographs of the distributions of all donations and the names of the beneficiaries.

Thank you very much for your support.
