Our Merc Home for girls, was founded in 2006. It is located in Bangog Barrio, Caloocan, which is the fourth poorest district of Manila. Caloocan City, in the great Manila, presents particular conditions of overcrowding, with the social consequences of unemployment, poverty and child malnutrition.
Our goal is to give girls the opportunity to overcome the social constraints of their environment, and grow in a healthy, Christian atmosphere. We now host 32 girls and have a long waiting list. We have also created a “home school” in our house. Thus, we make sure that they receive a good education in a healthy environment.
