Kim, a member of the Christian Arts Group, and her husband Marek Kalinowski visited Kim’s home in the Philippines in 2016 with a desire to help support a village called Lacnog. During their visit they were able to feed 150 people and gave gifts gathered from colleagues, friends and family to 100 children.

Having seen the poverty that many in this village due to the lack of viable work and education, they came home to the UK with the desire to find a way to support this community in a more sustainable long term manner. Kim managed to make a 5 point help list - to support developing a sustainable livelihood for those living in Lacnog; to help provide sanitation; to support with education; to help with providing nutrition; to help with local healthcare.

They have started working alongside the local community, and have funds ready to buy banana seedlings to plant alongside the rice crop that the local community grows.
