HISTORY

Guided by the teachings in the Bible and inspired by the passionate love and concern of Brother Felix Y. Manalo, the Last Messenger of God in These Last Days to the spiritual well-being and general welfare of each member of the Iglesia Ni Cristo (Church Of Christ). The late Brother Eraño G. Manalo upheld the doctrine of brotherly love by leading the brethren to extend help, do good, and share with those who are in need, church members and non-members alike. Anchored on such faith, the Church Of Christ commenced the “Lingap sa Mamamayan” (Aid To Humanity) Program. The program aims to provide relief goods, health care, and other services to the needy, especially those who are afflicted by calamities and disasters. The coverage of human and social welfare programs were even expanded to include seminars for disaster preparedness, first aid, and family planning. Other humanitarian activities such as blood donations, and community clean up drives were also conducted in different parts of the world where the Church Of Christ is established.

The immense growth of the human and social welfare programs and the intense desire of the current Executive Minister of the Church Of Christ, Brother Eduardo V. Manalo, to help the brethren and the people in need lead to the birth of another humanitarian institution, the “Felix Y. Manalo Foundation” or better known as the “FYM Foundation” which was formally registered in the Philippines on the 4th of February 2011, and in the United States on the 17th of May 2012. From its establishment, the FYM Foundation has been a strong partner of the Church of Christ in helping people not only within the Philippines, but also in other parts of the world such as the United States of America, Japan, South Korea, Spain, and Russia, where the FYM Foundation officially recognized. The FYM Foundation also extends its aid and services to the needy in countries such as the United Kingdom, France, Japan and Australia.The Felix Y. Manalo Foundation envisions being one of the leading charitable institutions in the world by providing services for people to lead healthy and productive lives and promoting community development. As long as there are people in need, the FYM Foundation will continue to fulfill its pledge of extending help through aid and services promoting education, socio-economic well-being, environmental awareness and health improvement.
