During the trip, the committee visited the old orphanage. One member also donated clothing and toys for the children. Despite the poor conditions of the old orphanage, Sister Alex was all smiles and said to One Heart, “I am so happy…I feel like a millionaire because everything that I ask God for, He provides.”
The delegation also met with the Angeles University Foundation and they confirmed receipt of hospital equipment that One Heart helped to facilitate delivery.
On 28 May, the delegation attended the official opening ceremony of the new Duyan ni Maria orphanage. Further information on the ceremony can be found here.
After the ceremony, two friends of One Heart — who had also joined One Heart on the visit — pledged financial support to help with purchasing a vehicle to transport the children to and from school. A One Heart committee member also promised to match this pledge.
The visit was blessed and many graces were drawn from it, both for the One Heart members and the children, for whom all this work is ultimately for.
