PROJECT P907SON

Today, an estimated 1.5 million children live on the streets in the Philippines.  They are born into poverty and squalor.  Many are abused.  All are hungry, and all deal with pervasive feelings of rejection and hopelessness.  Camp Sonshine Center was founded in 1999 by Go To Nations missionaries Jesse and Kay Landis to meet the spiritual, physical and emotional needs of those children.  Approximately 80 children are fed and ministered to five days a week (550 meals are distributed weekly), young "scholars" are further educated, and mothers are engaged with the Gospel. Each summer, the Sonshine Center hosts children's camps which minister to seven "depressed areas" of Iloilo City.
