The BIG Race is a fund-raising event spearheaded by Christ’s Commission Fellowship – Commonwealth Singles Ministry and CCF East Churches for the benefit of GALA Foundation. It’s happening on October 17 in Marikina Riverbanks Center.
GALA (Gabay sa Landas ) Foundation goes out to the community to build relationships with children they see begging, sniffing glue, collecting scraps, selling sampaguita etc. They invite them to participate in their various activities such as feeding, Bible lessons, reading and writing lessons, games and small group discussions. They provide them opportunities to experience love through friendship with people they would not think cared about them.
As they get to know them, they evaluate how they may be of better help to them. They provide aids like scholarship, financial support, and residency in the shelter.
Children who are classified as orphaned, abandoned, street children, abused or neglected, who would be permitted by their parents and local government unit are qualified to live in the Gala shelter in Angono, Rizal where they will experience having a home.
They believe that transformation hardly happens when these children stay in the very environment that pulls them down. Taking them out and into a new surrounding can lead to their more progressive and consistent change.
Their approach is both preventive and restorative. By taking the children off the streets, they aim to prevent further damages in their lives.
