Rev. Fr. Matthieu Dauchez, executive director of Tulay ng Kabataan Foundation and ten other priests will assist Cardinal Tagle in baptizing the children from the slum areas.

It is often the perception that because of poverty or lack of financial resources, the poor cannot receive the graces brought about by the Sacraments. TNK in partnership with the Archdiocese of Manila wishes to correct this false perception.

“When it is so difficult to bring our wounded children to God, it is, on the opposite, very easy to bring the Lord to them through the Sacraments,” Fr. Matthieu Dauchez said.

Tulay ng Kabataan Foundation has been serving the poorest children of Manila since 1998.  The foundation developed 5 programs aiming at giving back the dignity of street children, street children with special needs, scavenger children, and children in slums. Apart from those, the institution also helps the elderly that are abandoned in the streets. They welcome a total of 1,500 children each year in 36 centers in Metro Manila and 1 in Bataan.

More than 55,000 children in Metro Manila have been helped by the TNK foundation for the past 21 years. (Jheng M. Prado/RCAM-AOC)
