Rebuilding Communities in the Philippines

God restored one man’s heart and give him the strength to not only dream again for his community but also take action.

As the Philippines prepare for their elections, their police forces are also gearing up to deal with riots and gun violence that have erupted during the last two elections.

Thanks to gang wars, drug running and terrorist groups, the Philippines deal with twice as much gun violence as the United States. A national cry is rising for the government to deal with the corruption and resulting deaths.

Others feel as if it’s no good trying to fight against the seemingly overwhelming wave of violence.
