Water supply for the poor
Lesley Gomez left England at 22 to serve as a missionary in the Philippines. Today she and her husband Peter run LAMA, a charity and safe house for the abandoned boys of the streets.
Pete has been digging wells for the squatter village on the beach near LAMA House – more than 35 families here, they had no water supply. We also built a church several years ago, cared for by Pastor Agusto.This community is being transformed out of severe poverty. Next Pete plans to install public toilets – we put some years ago but they were washed away in the floods.
