Prints of Hope would like to thank all of the supporters that contributed to the Prints of Hope Philippines project. Imagine the face of a child receiving a new gift for the first time in their life? Can you also imagine how good it would feel to be able to sleep in a bed with a mattress for the first time? Words cannot express the overwhelming joy of these children because of your donation. Over 1200 children received new uniforms with brand new shoes through the Dress A Child program. Close to 1000 children received medical attention. Schools received new roofs, walls and other urgent accessories which were in great need in order to keep the schools open and running.One of the wonderful experiences from the Philippines is the story of a little girl named Sus. She lived in a little shack with her mother. “The first time we saw the small shelter where both of them lived, it was already tilting to the side” said one of the volunteers.

The old wood sticks holding the palm leaves and plastic bags which were used as walls could not hold any longer. Two months before Prints of Hope got there, news came that their shelter had fallen and they had no place to live. To make the story short, Prints of Hope built her and her grandmother a beautiful new home and for the first time in her 8 years of life, she can sleep comfortably in a bed with a mattress. But, from all the gifts and work that was done, the greatest was the opportunity the children had to learn about Christ. More than 1200 children received the Dress A Child coloring book “God’s plan for you”. This wonderful book explains the message of the gospel in a coloring format that is fun and easy to understand.
