Cunina in the Philippines
In 1993, Cunina started their first child sponsorship list in the Philippines. Cunina goodwill ambassador Sabine De Vos became the godparent of Marlon, a Philippine boy. Marlon is now married, has two sons and works as a certified computer scientist at Ford.
Marlon was not the only child that we were able to help in the past couple of years. Thanks to the support of Cunina, children graduated as nurses, teachers, engineers, social workers and so on. Even different graduated teachers now have their own child sponsorship list.
We were able to help these children, who are now adults, break the vicious circle of poverty. They can now contribute to a better future for their family and others in their community.
In the past, Cunina had also realized a couple of amazing projects in the Philippines. For example, the organization built 60 homes for poor families in Diadi. After typhoon Haiyan hit the Philippines in 2013, Cunina made an appeal to rebuild the houses of afflicted godchildren. The organization started a brand new project in 2014. The purpose of this project was to provide Cunina partner school with libraries.
