Women Volunteers Fight Food Insecurity in the Philippines

Dasmariñas, Philippines, is a busy city south of Manila - an up-and-coming area, but one struggling with very real poverty. Poverty to the point of needing to take out high-interest loans just to buy food, then taking out other loans to pay off the first one, and so on and so forth, in a vicious cycle. In response, The Salvation Army’s Dasmariñas Corps created a mini-store, run by women volunteers from the Corps, to provide a low-cost option for food essentials, and allowing customers to purchase on credit without interest. The store’s profits are pooled together, and annually divided amongst the volunteers and the church community. Learn about this fascinating community and the way the local Corps shares God’s love with their neighbors by meeting them where they’re at, not only spiritually, but also physically.
