Philippine Self-Help Foundation


It is a privilege to be associated with PSHF and the transforming work that is done through a loan or a grant.  So little goes so far towards making a deep impact on the lives of recipients and their families, and often their communities.

I first became aware of the work of PSHF through a class that Richard Foster offered at Tokyo Union Church.  The class was in preparation for a trip to the Philippines to see the fruits of loans and grants sponsored by members of the church.  That first hand experience was transforming for me and sparked the idea of establishing a fund in the name of my deceased parents. I can think of no better way to memorialize two people who taught me to be aware of the wider world and the needs of those in poverty or distress.  

I encourage everyone to support the work of PSHF through donations, memorials and prayer.
