In the Philippines, Holt International helps struggling parents care for their children, and helps children growing up without families to join permanent, loving families through adoption.

Millions of Filipinos live in poverty, with many children showing up to school on empty stomachs. Through Holt’s education and nutrition programs, sponsors and donors help Filipino parents provide for their children. Sponsors and donors also help provide nurturing care for orphaned and vulnerable children while they wait to rejoin their family or join an adoptive family. Read stories about Holt’s work in the Philippines and the children and families in our programs, as well as stories by and about Filipino adoptees and adoptive families!
