"Who will notice them and who will care, if not us?" a friend of mine told me the other day.
This is a question that has confronted me multiple times in Metro Manila. Do I care? If I don't care? Who will?
There is a little boy named Keeghan from Crawfordsville, Oregon who cares. He cares so much that he started a recycling campaign to raise funds for underwear and pants for kids in the Dona Pepeng and Banaba Extension neighborhoods. On Facebook, Keeghan saw pictures of kids at Sidewalk Saturday School who didn't have on any underpants or pants and... he cared. He cared so much that he raised 4,300 pesos in a weekend.
And if you give even a cup of cold water to one of the least of my followers, you will surely be rewarded." Jesus Christ
Banaba House Ministries was started by a guy who cared. After traveling the world and seeing poverty with his eyes, when he moved to Banaba Extension, Gary Myers saw poverty with his heart. And, he cares. I want to be more like Keeghan and Gary. I want to see poverty with my heart. I want to care.
If you help the poor, you are lending to the LORD--and he will repay you! Proverbs 19:17
