One of our fabulous followers has just returned from doing a Baby Teresa donation in Manila. A big thanks to Karen for supporting Baby Teresa! Here is Karen’s story –
My name is Karen and I recently had the opportunity to spend eleven days in Manila visiting my fiance while he is there with work. I contacted Baby Teresa and asked if they would like me to deliver a donation of rompers to Manila. They happily said yes and I was soon on my way with twenty rompers.
I researched a few orphanages and found the White Cross Children’s Home. They look after orphans along with children whose parents cannot look after them for a number of reasons. When I phoned them I had my hotel concierge help me – well, I handed him my phone and had him do the talking. It was a beautiful mix of English and Filipino. They would be happy to receive the donation, come any day between these hours and photos ok but no close ups of their children.
The children are a mix of orphans and those who for whatever reason are unable to be with their parents at the moment.
