White Cross Orphanage is a child caring agency in San Juan, Philippines that provides temporary shelter for children, who are 0–6 years old. Accredited by the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD), it gives refuge to children of unwed mothers, indigent families, tuberculosis patients, mentally or physically-incapacitated parents, prisoners, or victims of incest or rape.These children are provided with medical assistance, educational care, and financial support to help them in their early years.
An institution focusing on unwanted children, physically incapacitated parents and children whose parents were victims of rape, incest or in the prison.
In the early 20th century when there was an outbreak of tuberculosis (TB) in the Philippines, the orphanage was established to shelter the children of the TB patients of the Quezon Institute. It was founded by Victoria Lopez de Araneta in 1936. Its founding board members include Mercedes McMicking, Conrado Dayrit, Emmanuel J. Dymek, Teodoro Evangelista, Mrs. Carl Hess, Manuel Mañosa, Vincente Marasigan, Paulino Miranda Sampedro, Gonzalo Puyat, Juan Tuason, and Soledad Zulueta. Through the leadership of de Araneta, the board purchased the land in Santolan, San Juan, which is four-hectare lot, where the structure would be built. One of its recognized supporters at that time was President Manuel Quezon and in his honor the orphanage was also known as the Quezon Preventorium. He signed a bill that allowed a portion of horse race revenues to be channeled to the orphanage. In 1938, two years after its initial operations, the institution was run under the care of the Daughters of Charity of Saint Vincent de Paul who took in 20 children of TB patients as its wards. The nuns managed the orphanage until they turned it over to the current board in 2004.

Founded by Maria Angeles “Lita” Peypoch Fullerton in 1988, Chosen Children Village offers a unique concept in the care of disabled children. Her dream was to provide a home environment with a family setting for abandoned children with physical and mental disabilities.
The village is a haven, a home for life, for abandoned children who are physically and mentally challenged. Our goal is to help these kids ultimately become independent and self-reliant despite their disabilities and be able to attain a more meaningful, productive and satisfying way of LIFE.
The center prepares and serves all the meals for the children and staff, with the goal of promoting optional nutrition for all. It’s also available for guests who would like to celebrate their birthdays and special occasions with the children at the village.
The Arantza Rehabilitation Center is an essential facility in the village. It provides services which are necessary for the children’s physical, cognitive and social development, through the help of the physical and occupational therapists.
The success of the Chosen Children Village depends solely on the generosity and continued support of the general public and corporations who join our sponsorship programs.
We like to say that for the price of your 2 fancy orders of coffee per month, you can help provide a loving home for these little angels.

The International Christian Leprosy Mission (ICLM) started work in the Philippines in 1945 by sending three American nurses. During the Civil War in China, American missionaries joined the Philippine ministry, and a nursery home for babies was built. ICLM formalized its work with the children by establishing the Philippine Children’s Mission (PCM) in 1960. In 1965, a home for the children was constructed in PCM’s one-hectare lot in Balagtas, Bulacan. By this time also, the ministry was entrusted to Filipino workers. Since then, by caring for disadvantaged children, sending them to school, and instilling in them Christian values, PCM has helped many to have a brighter future.

Meritxell Children's World Foundation Inc. (MCWFI) has been caring for marginalized and abandoned children aged 0-15 since 2008. Meritxell began as a response to the difficulties of providing adequate care and attention to abandoned girls in the state run care system in the Philippines. In 2010 Meritxell Children's World Foundation Inc expanded to begin a home for abandoned infants.
The Foundation was established to provide a loving environment for children who have had little opportunity for any kind of family support, specifically those who have been rescued, abandoned, neglected, orphaned, surrendered and found. It is more of a home than an institution.
Aside from the initial funding support from Andorra, Meritxell operates from donations from a range of individuals. Running two homes to the highest standards requires substantial funding, and we are always appreciative of additional support.
Meritxell believes that every child deserves and will benefit from an education. Meritxell is proud to be the only child-caring agency in the Philippines today that sends its children to a top private school, the Infant Jesus Academy.
Meritxell Foundation trustees envision a permanent family placement for each child, if family reintegration is not possible. We explore all possible options for permanent adoption placements for the children in our care with loving families, locally or overseas. This includes a partnership with Inter-County-Adoption Board (ICAB) for the participation of Meritxell children in the summer and winter camp programs in the USA for older children, which provides wonderful life experiences they would not otherwise have and inter-country adoption.

Foster Care is temporary in nature. It can be for a short period or long term. The foster parents do not become the legal parents of the child but they give love and care that a child needs while NORFIL seeks a permanent home for the child.
The children found in the loving care of foster families are abandoned, neglected, maltreated, relinquished for adoption or from birth families who are temporarily unable to give them love and care. The children receive one-on-one care and are provided with appropriate stimulating activities suitable for their age and developmental growth.
Through foster care, the trauma of being separated from one’s family is mended. It is also a preparation for a child’s possible reunification with his/her birth family or permanent placement through legal adoption.

Asilo de San Vicente de Paul (ASVP), formerly known as Casa de San Vicente de Paul, was founded on 26 July 1885 by Sr. Asuncion Ventura DC, a native Bacolor, Pampanga. She donated an inheritance from her family to the Daughters of Charity and purchased a lot of 6 hectares of land for a building where she established the asylum for girls, making her the first Filipina to build an orphanage in the country.
The facade of Asilo de San Vicente de Paul ASVP started with only 33 wards, catering to girls who were orphans or homeless. Later on, it expanded its services into providing education and training to young girls, particularly on embroidery and needlework, which has become a distinction of the institution. The Spanish government provided a monthly supply of 20 cavans of rice to the orphanage, which was later continued by the Americans until government aid to charitable institutions was ceased due to the prohibition dictated by the Jones Law. Over time, ASVP has sold portions of land until today it retains two hectares for the institution. The mother of former Philippine First Lady Imelda Marcos, Remedios Trinidad, used to be a ward at the ASVP.
In 1942 during World War 2 Manila was bombed leading to the burning of the ASVP building, where according to ASVP, 200 people died. The structure was rebuilt in February 1945. One of the benefactors of ASVP in its rebuilding was Don Teodoro V. Santos (1915-1983), who was a devout Catholic and philanthropist. For a time, ASVP also operated as an educational institution but the school was gradually closed between 1982 and 1999 and ASVP focused on its role in child care.
