Caring for Children
About Queen of Peace Children's Home
The children at Queen of Peace come from all different walks of life. Many of the 40 children under the care of Mother Joy are disabled. Others were brought to the sisters after their parents died, and still some were abandoned there in hopes they would have a better life than wandering through the streets.
The sisters provide them with their basic needs: feeding them, caring for them, clothing them, and finding permanent homes for them through adoption. The sisters take in day old babies and keep them with them until they find a home.
The Compassionate Franciscan Sisters of the Poor founded the Queen of Peace Children'sHome 18 years ago in one of the poorest villages in the country, Pacol, Naga City, Philippines. They work in Pacol to joyfully serve the children who are cast away by their families often times because they are disabled or crippled. The sister's children's home is the only religious Pro-life Adoption Center for the City of Naga and the Southern Bicol Region. They have worked hard to place children in adoptive families in Sweden, Spain, Italy and the USA. The process is intense. They have to travel two hours away to Legaspi and eight hours away to Manila to get the right documents for the children's travel and adoption.
The sister's have tremendous faith daily giving their "yes" to God knowing they may not be able to provide for the children in the ways they need each day. With over 40 children in the children's home to care for and over 50 children from the surrounding villages to teach they have their work cut out for them. But the sisters have hope. We ask you now from the bottom of your heart to give hope to the children for the year to come.
Poverty calls us to sow hope.
