2) On-site Assistance – AEM has been supporting Nazareth Home and Day Care centers in Barangay Escopa since 1990. Their support has expanded to the Independent Living & Educational Assistance (ILEA) program.

3) A shared commitment for the future of the world’s children, the AEM are represented in France by a strong and friendly network of volunteer delegates who are committed to utilizing their individual talents and skills to support the actions of AEM.
