Where does Ayude come from?

After a visit to the Philippines, Charles Verberckmoes was moved by seeing the plight of the children living in the slums of Manila, the capital city. Together with some friends (now the board members) he established an organisation focusing on the improvement of the economic, social and spiritual conditions of poor (street) children.

Soon we made contact with a local Philippine aid agency (led by Steve Mirpuri) who shared the same vision as Ayude. Thereupon Ayude ( Spanish word for „Help along”) was founded in 1994.
