Hunger Alleviation Program is a response to
the poverty in the Philippines and other third
world countries and a bridge to minister God
to the families or communities we are reaching
Hunger Alleviation Program is composed of:
(Feed-A-Child) recognizes that hunger is lethal for
children. FAC basically feeds children aged
6-10 years old because these children are in
their primary education. Proper nutrition will
ensure their learning ability, growth, and body
resistance from diseases.
To truly transform the community spiritually
and socio-economically, FAC also offers Community
Empowerment and Education, Technical Skill Transfer,
and Livelihood Project Development to the parents
of the recipients and other community members.
FAC aims to see children who were undernourished
before the project to reach a normal weight
in relation to their age and height and to do
better in school after the 1 year duration of
the project. On the other hand, the project
wants to raise parents who are more equipped
to deal with the health, economic, and spiritual
well-being of their children or family.
SAB (Share-A-Blessing) project, on the
other hand, is a one-time intervention to communities
which we consider as disadvantaged and needy
such as prisoners, women, laborers, farmers,
urban-poor, physically-challenged individuals,
and abused children. This is a secondary thrust
of the program, however, we believe this is
as necessary as the FAC project. We may just
share food or other material blessings once,
but we are always bringing Christ to our beneficiaries.
By sharing Christ’s word and salvation,
we are giving them eternal food and eternal
of Share-a-Blessing Activities:
- Medical Mission
- Food Sharing
- Bible/Book Distribution
- Goods Distribution
- School Supplies Distribution
- Bible Visitation
Disaster Relief Program
An occurrence of a major calamity can be devastating
and disheartening to the victims. For some, this
is the moment to question life and even God. For
FGG, this is a chance to reassure these people
how God loves them and how perfect His will is.
FGG might not be able to give sustaining relief
goods to all of the disaster victims, but by bringing
Christ along with our packs of relief goods and
engaging the people in a godly worship and praises,
we bring people a food for their soul and a package
of eternal life. We bridge Christ into their hearts.
And if ever they receive Him, they will not burden
themselves about the loved ones or the properties
they lost, but instead, they will trust God’s
leading and look forward to a sunny and everlasting
future with Him.
