Through the Together in Hope project under the leadership of Rev. Diane, Harris Memorial College was able to reach out to pre-school children, community youth and women in Taytay, Rizal, Philippines. The community based-pre -school program serves the poorest of the poor children where feeding program is incorporated. In this way, children are provided nutritious food to help arrest malnutrition and mitigate hunger experienced by these children. In addition, personal hygiene is also being taught among pre school children. Through the sewing project initiated by Together in Hope in partnership with Harris Memorial College, community women earn their keep inside their homes giving women more time to earn and to take care of their small children. As a result, children's health and safety inside their homes are attended to. Through the medical and dental mission organized and participated by the Together in Hope medical team and volunteers in 2011, 250-300 medical patients and 120 dental patients were served. Simultaneously, seminars on preventive health care, first aid, and maternal and child care were conducted with Harris nurses and students as resource persons. Through these initiatives, Harris was able to revive and energize the health committee in the community level. We praise and thank God for what the Together in Hope is doing for the people of God among the urban poor communities in the Philippines.
