BAHAY TULUYAN, a charity

has been receiving cash and in-kind donations from the Filipino Children’s
Foundation since 1997. Two years ago, our volunteers from California and
Canada delivered clothing, shoes, toys and chocolates to the children of
What started as a purely food and shelter program is now a full service
organization that serves the needs of children up to the young adolescence
age. The center-based services includes feeding, temporary shelter, educational
assistance, psychiatric evaluation and medical care. The organization has
facilities in Santa Mesa and Tiaong. Three years ago, Bahay Tuluyan launched
the street-based feeding program. Utilizing a mobile unit equipped with
ready- to-serve meals and assisted by volunteer doctors, its staff are able
to provide instant help to street children in the most densely populated
neighborhoods of the city.
The Filipino Children’s Foundation is an active partner in Bahay
Tuluyan's work and will continue to support its programs.
