HAPPYLAND SLUMS,
MANILA, PHILIPPINES

Filling short and long term needs in extreme poverty.

This project is my baby. The first time I walked into these slums in the summer of 2019 I knew that God had something in store for me in this place. The harvest here is pouring over plenty, yet the laborers are less than few. I need your help here. Please read my blog post and watch my documentary at the bottom of this page.

 

Click below to see how far the USD goes in this place. On top of mattresses, fans, food, shoes, clothes, medicine, I plan to build plastic homes outside of the community as well as plastic mattresses.

I also will be buying a tool called 'Taho'. Jefferson has informed me that this is a tool that the fathers are in need of. They can use this tool to earn a sustainable income everyday to feed their families, rather than collect trash. This tool cost less than $300 and will jumpstart these families into a sustainable future.

Please use the GOFUNDME links on my DONATE page below to donate to this cause while my 501c3 Non-Profit is a work in progress!

THEIR STORY

"Happyland" a counterintuitive term for the slums in which I am convinced are some of the most inhumane living conditions in the world. But little did I know, that "Happyland" does not just refer to the land of Happy people, but can be translated to "City Dump". That makes more sense. These slums were once the city dump, until squatters came and began to nest and breed in this area. One of the main problems here in the Philippines is that it is a catholic nation, which is great, but boy oh boy them kids don't stop coming. The average family I came across in the community were 5-7 kids, 2 parents, and a grandparent or a cousin/uncle or two. Put this number in the equation along with $3 avg. income daily per household, and you do not get a pleasant scenario. What I saw in these slums is nothing short of inhumane. These people are not well. They are Hungry. Thirsty. Hot. Sick. Trapped.

One response I sometimes get when I am traveling and tell people what my efforts are currently focused on is, "You know, that is great you feel that way. But it is what it is, the poor in those communities don't know otherwise, they don't know any better." This one is interesting. You know the one suggesting that the poor don't know any better is by definition admitting that he does know better otherwise he wouldn't know what better is! And I believe this to be true. We do know better, I don't think it is pertinent at all to the matter whether or not the victim does. We as Americans, or better yet as humans, are in an incredibly strong position to change the scene here in Manila. It honestly won't take much. The USD is so strong here. We are filthy rich here, but like the flower of the grass the rich man will soon fade away in the midst of his pursuits.

With me, there is no overhead, no transaction fees. Literally 100% of your generous gift will be liquidated 

directly into the life that you want to serve. Just make sure and tell me in the notes once you donate.

Together, along with the strong USD, anything is possible.

HOW YOU CAN HELP

At Hamilton Intl. Mission, I've created a steam-lined system to help these people who are in literally the most  desperate need. In order for you to want to help more, you need to see where your dollar goes, and that is okay, honestly that is how it should be. I am the same way, I need to see it to believe it. So in light of this thought, I will be showing you, via my IG, FB, Youtube, and Website exactly where you dollar is going. The harvest here is plenty, yet the laborers are few, very few. These people need our help, even if we are on the other side of the world. 

So my plan is to be in Manila for at least one month a year, every year, we will see how things go, who knows what the future holds. As of now, I am going in early 2020. I plan to first tackle immediate needs that are not just additions for a better life, but absolute necessities in which these families are lacking. These include:

Medicine. Mattress. Fan. Food. Water. Clothes. ( Shoes!!! ) Toilet. Etc.

I also will be buying a tool called 'Taho'. Jefferson has informed me that this is a tool that the fathers are in need of. They can use this tool to earn a sustainable income everyday to feed their families, rather than collect trash. This tool cost less than $300 and will jumpstart these families into a sustainable future.

After this, I plan to partner with an organization I randomly found on Youtube that is based in Manila, called The Plastic Bank. Together, in 2020 I hope to build my first house made up of entirely plastic, except for the rafters and a tin roof. But first things first, people need to know about this, please share my documentary.
