History of CCM

Christian Compassion Ministries began in 1995 as a result of the church, (Cubao Reformed Baptist Church) being made aware of the needs around us in Cubao,
Manila, Philippines. Near to our meeting place four or five street families lived under makeshift covers at night. Hearing of the needs among street children and having received a gift to help the poor and needy, the church sought the Lord as to what we should do. The answer was to seek to provide a home for girls from the streets. In May 1995 we began our children's home in a small apartment at the back of the church building, housing five children (pictured below). The church employed two lady church members to look after them. 

Also later in the year, the two ladies together with the Director of CCM (pictured right), started going out into the slums to seek out children who were most in need of help with their education. Since then the work has been blessed and grown, and the maximum number of children we can accommodate in our homes has increased to 68, and there are nearly 300 children being supported with their education in local slum areas.

In 2000 the Lord enabled us to open four new homes in a purpose-built complex at Masinag, around 30 minutes drive from the church. In 2003 Faith House was purchased for older teenagers from our Homes who are now in College. In 2006, the Lord again provided, and we were able to start a Boys Home, called Damascus Home, located in a subdivision near to Masinag.
