MISSIONARIES OF THE POOR: Encounter with Sabrina’s Kitchen and Easy Cures! (and how you can also help)

Missionaries of the Poor Manila-14.jpg

Missionaries of the Poor Manila is an international mission that started was in October 2011 by the Religious Institute of Brothers of Pontifical Right. 

It was founded by Fr. Richard Ho Lung, a former Jesuit priest, in the slums of Kingston, Jamaica in 1931. In the Philippines, they have three mission areas–Manila, Naga City (September 1994), and Cebu City (February 2004).

The Manila Mission is composed of the Divine Mercy Monastery where the Brothers live, and the Divine Mercy Apostolate Center in Manila, which is home to homeless elderly men and special-needs children.

They do corporal works of mercy: feeding the hungry, housing the homeless, caring for street children and the sick, including HIV/AIDS and leprosy patients, and visiting prisoners. 

Every Sunday, Sabrina Artadi of Sabrina’s Kitchen hosts a healthy feeding program for the poor in the area with her Super Caldo and fruits. 

Our friend Tina Vitas of Easy Cures invited us to join one Sunday, which was also very timely for our son Raphael’s 7th Birthday celebration.

Here’s our experience visiting the Missionaries of the Poor and how you can also help…
