About 21 million of the inhabitants of the Philippines are considered poor and live in terrible conditions. More than another 20 million people have only mini-jobs to keep their heads above water.

Who we are
We are married, have 6 children. Karin has a solid education as an educator with numerous further training courses in the areas of trauma, attachment behaviour, prayer pastoral school and family system. Werner completed an apprenticeship in industry and for many years was responsible for 150 people.
Werner is also a passionate worshiper. Both of us have been deeply rooted in faith for several decades and have personally experienced God’s glory in many situations in life. We therefore believe that God wants to bring people out of terrible poverty and is looking for people who are willing to make themselves available. God has placed children in need on our hearts and has commanded us to help them.
