I. MINISTRY HISTORY
The Precious Heritage Ministries Foundation, Inc. (PHMF) is a non-stock, non-profit and charitable organization in the Philippines established for the purpose of helping the orphaned, abandoned, neglected and less privileged children and families in NCR and Region IV-A. PHMF was established in September 15, 2008 as an extension ministry of Pastor & Mrs. Joel and Levy Santos. They started this ministry after 15 years of ministering in Sta. Cruz, Manila as urban poor missionaries and saw many children in the slum areas dying of sickness, hunger, and for lack of nutrition and proper medication due to poverty. After a long period of earnest prayer, the desire to have a permanent place for the program realized when the Lord helped them acquired a house and lot in Cupang, Antipolo City offered on installment basis and of minimum price.
Right after the incorporation, Precious Heritage Ministries Foundation Inc. started its residential facility called Precious Heritage Children’s Home (PHCH) for orphaned and abandoned children ages 0 to 12 as well as the community-based programs for street kids, malnourished and under-privileged families in Metro Manila. Precious Heritage was then accredited by Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) in April 2013 with certificate awarded by Honorable Secretary Corazon “Dinky” Soliman. In June 2013 due to the need of the PHCH children’s formal school, Precious Heritage Christian School (PHCS) was also established and granted permit by the Department of Education to offer NKP and Grades 1-10 to its clientele.
Precious Heritage Ministries Foundation provides residential-based programs for the orphaned, abandoned, and neglected children ages 0 to 12 years old; and community-based programs for the malnourished, street and underprivileged children from nursery-aged level up to College.
Orphaned and abandoned children are in desperate need of care. With no one to provide shelter or care, orphaned children are often left to wander the streets and scavenge for food. The lucky ones will be admitted to local orphanages. Many of these orphaned and abandoned children become undernourished and never receive any education. They will grow up without ever feeling loved.
Older abandoned children that are not admitted to orphanages live desperate lives on the streets. These children learned to beg or steal food and find shelter wherever they can. Police often view street children as a menace to the community rather than minors that need their protection.
Orphans and abandoned children in developing nations often have no one to advocate for them. They are regularly abused physically and sexually, with little hope of recourse. Many street orphans will grow-up to life of prostitution or imprisonment.
In view of the above, Precious Heritage Ministries Foundation Inc. was organized to cater these orphaned, abandoned, neglected, street and underprivileged children in the Philippines to give them hope and a brighter future. This ministry is prioritizing the children from Metro Manila and Regions IV-A.
