Willing Hearts Orphanage started in 2008 by two friends; Maria Teresa from the Philippines and Thomas Wee from Singapore. Both Maria and Thomas share a mutual passion to do good. And today, they have 7 resident volunteers, and their orphanage is home to 17 kids, (3 of which are girls), who have lost their parents, lived on the streets, or been abandoned. These wonderful children, receive shelter, nourishment, security, love and education.
“Good actions give strength to ourselves and inspire good actions in others.” -Ma’am Maria Teresa
