LOYO Elementary – Our new Sister Community in the Philippines

Our St Kevin’s community is proud to learn more of our new sister Community so that we can understand their needs and better assist them. To do this we’ve sponsored one of our dedicated teachers- Fulvia Gerolisimo – who has embarked on a missionary trip to the Philippines to experience first hand our newly sponsored community of ‘LOYO’. 
An update in April 2021 showed us the progress of an undercover shelter being built for the school children; to seek refuge from the weather and become a multi-purpose area for the school. 
SADLY December 2021 – a typhoon came in and devastated the whole community, wiping our everything, including recent buildings, shelter and the school.
A Go Fund Me page has been set up also:  Go Fund Me page link here

Gentle Hands are going through COVID-19 in even more difficult circumstances than we can imagine.

Gentle Hands Orphanage is a very special charity St Kevin’s endorses.

Charity Graff, Executive Director, and her staff are among the most dedicated people towards the abandoned and abused children of the Philippines. The orphanage has been running since 1993.
With love and faith, Gentle Hands gives children hope, a safe place and possible future.

A Day in the Life of an Orphanage

They say pictures are worth a thousand words.
Sometimes I look at these precious faces and cannot find words to express the incredible miracle that I see. And while you may not know the details of each background story, it is enough to say know that God is moving, even when we don’t see it, He is working and taking what was meant to destroy their lives and turning it into hope, and a future.
Just as He promised.
