In 1988 the Kanlungan sa ER-MA Ministry Inc. was established in response to the growing menace of abuse and exploitation of street children in Metro Manila. While “kanlungan” means sanctuary or refuge, ERMA stands for Ermita-Malate, former red light district of the capital

In Kanlungan, children are provided with the necessary care, love, protection, rehabilitation and education. Driven by unity, love, respect and the faith in God, Kanlungan helps improve the lives and opportunities of many less fortunate in the streets of Manila.

Kanlungan sa ER-MA Ministry Inc. is a non-profit organization, licensed by the DSWD to operate as a child-caring agency and is registered with SEC. Furthermore, it is a member of NCSD, PHILCADSA, MWN-CNSP, PCMN, ABSNET and DDB-IAC.

“Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”  Matthew 19:14
