Celine, along with her brother, were brought to Face the Children by the government Social Services (DSWD). Her story is one of malnourishment, abandonment by her father, and left only to the care of her mother. Her mother, however, is deaf and mute and had no job or any other source of income. Because of this, the children would go out and beg jeepney passengers for money, despite the many dangers they would encounter. The mother could not change this need for begging by the children, because the kids were literally starving. Now, in our care, Celine is healthy, safe, and doing very well in her studies at our school, Frontline Christian Academy.
