our history

BYSMP Bless the Children Foundation was born to give identity to the growing St. Martin Manila Mission.

Separate but not different from her mother mission, Bahay at Yaman ni San Martin de Porres, Inc. We prefer to be called ‘St. Martin – Bless the Children’, a prayerful invocation to our Patron Saint St. Martin de Porres.

Since the re-launch of the Manila Mission in 2009, BYSMP, Inc. had made its existence felt in the depressed barangays of Binondo and Tondo, implementing programs like Feeding for malnourished children; a weekly free medical clinic; informal education; livelihood programs, values and spiritual formation. Community Workers were immersed in the different areas to reach out and help the most in-need members of the community.  The Sponsorship Program in partnership with Ancop also took flight in 2010. With sponsored children, BYSMP developed programs to cater to the holistic development of this group of school age children. 

In July 1, 2013, a Contract of Lease was inked between Bahay at Yaman ni San Martin de Porres, Inc. and The John DV Salvador Foundation providing free use of Centro Salvador for community programs for the disadvantaged sector. On this fateful day, an Agency Agreement was also signed with Chalice Canada to signal the start of the Chalice Child Sponsorship Program in Tondo, as a Sub-Site of Bulacan Sponsorship Site. Fifty children were initially sponsored; more children were sponsored through the months that followed. As our sponsorship number grows, we focus too, on the malnourished, the sick, children with different abilities, providing them the necessary care.

In July 1, 2015, Chalice Canada confidently raised Tondo Sub-Site as an independent Chalice Sponsorship Site – Tondo Site. With the new site status comes more serious responsibility. More children were sponsored; more families were being assisted.Always keeping with Chalice Mission of Sharing Christ with all in need.

Centro Salvador gave us the space we need to continue to do the St. Martin community programs on a bigger scale and better level. Networking and partnership with different organizations gave us the opportunities to extend more assistance especially to the very sick children of the society.
