Mangold Foundation has been periodically supporting this lovely old couple, living in the middle of the jungle, and this since more than 40 years! Their humble lifestyle, without electricity, without flowing water in a small natively built bamboo house is amazing. No complaints, the two are radiating peace and happiness and have always given a big lesson - without realizing - to all our guests with whom we have visited the couple since the beginning in 2014, how different life can be. Their feeling of pleasure and happiness every time when we have visited their place is so wonderful a feeling and simply overwhelming.
Mangold Foundation in cooperation with the local DSWD Departement (Department of Social Welfare) was distributing relief goods, clothes, shoes, toys and food packages to a remote village. Thanks to the patronizing of German families this additional social event was made possible. Many people, especially children could get their unexpected Christmas Gift and made them real happy. Thanks a lot to all those generous persons who are spending time with organizing, preparing, packing and finally sponsoring additionally the transport to the Philippines. Such international solidarity and charity are signs that there is still a lot of "good" in this world.
Mangold Foundation took care of organizing a wheelchair for a selected woman in need, 60 years old who suffered from a stroke some time ago. This aid is of big help for her and her 75 years old husband who is taking care of her in quite modest surroundings.
