Fund For The Homeless

The Fund for the Homeless aims to offer permanent decent housing for underprivileged people, young and old, living under subhuman conditions on the streets, in squatters or at garbage slums, as well as for poor families whose homes were destroyed by natural disasters. Together we can end homelessness.

There are about 4.5 million homeless people in the Philippines out of a population of 106 million. About 3.1 million of them are in Manila, making it the city with the largest homeless population in the world by far.

The slums are places where high concentrations of these homeless gather. It is in these places where we see many poor, single parents, women, elderly, children with special needs, and malnourished children.

The homeless are deprived of their basic rights and necessities such as food, clothing, shelter, health and education. They also have limited or no access to government financial and social services, and society in general.

Homelessness is multifaceted. It includes people who work and pay taxes, but who are paid far less than a living wage and struggle with escalating housing costs. It includes people of all ages and genders fleeing abusive situations. It includes parents who do their best to raise their children under extremely difficult conditions, and children who do their best to learn and pursue an education under these same conditions.

The Philippine government needs to build at least 2,602 units of housing a day, in the next six years, to address the 5.7 million backlogs.

Your contribution will help us end homelessness.
