Global Humanitarian Group in New York Picks Filipino Ambassador to Help Typhoon Yolanda Victims

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Top-ranked speaker and master trainer, Boris Joaquin was recently appointed the Philippine Ambassador for the Private Sector by the Metro World Child Foundation based in Brooklyn New York, USA. Metro World Child is a global faith-based, humanitarian organization serving nearly 100,000 children each week with after school programs, Sunday School services, child sponsorship, special programs and personal home visits.

In 2001, Metro World Child began a work in Manila, Philippines. The goal was to reach children and families who were living in situations that were in most cases, beyond their control. Metro World Child went to some of the most needy areas such as Smokey Mountain, Tondo, Navotas, and other impoverished locations throughout the Philippines. Over a decade later, we now reach 20,000 children and their families on a weekly basis here in the Philippines alone. Metro World Child has grown to include other nations such as South Africa, Kenya, Romania, and India, and combined, now reach over 100,000 children around the world.

Joaquin is delighted by this new appointed following his stints with World Vision and involvements with HOPE Foundation, Scholars for Jesus, World Teach and Bible League, his role to help connect Metro World Child’s programs for the street children with right partners and corporate donors. “This is timely…” Joaquin quips, “…After Typhoon Yolanda, children lost their families, families grieved for their children. Despite this, however, we still believe that there is something that even the strongest storm cannot take away from them.”


With only a few days before the holiday season, you can assure these children and families that the Christmas spirit will not be lost. A small gift of love from you can make a big difference in their lives this year. It is in times like this that we are called to give what we can, and we believe that our gifts can serve as the light they very much need in their lives today. We can hope that these presents will bring the love they need from God in these trying times, given through us.

Boris continues, “We are working right now putting together shipping containers filled with desperately needed relief supplies. They are being prepared as we speak. Metro World Child reaches close to 20,000 children a week in the Philippines. We are determined to do “whatever it takes” to get this aid as well as the Gospel to those who need it most. Please help us.”

Metro World Child has program called Operation Holiday Hope, which gives Noche Buena grocery packs and Christmas gifts to these affected children. With the private sectors help this Christmas, Metro World Child can reach over 20,000 children in the Manila area. For P1000, you can provide one child and their family with a Noche Buena, Christmas dinner. Or for just P500, you can provide a child with a Christmas gift.
