While incessantly propagating the Word of God worldwide, Bro. Eli Soriano fulfills his moral and social responsibilities to his fellowmen. He spearheaded the ADD Foundation to manage the many public service works to help the abandoned and orphaned widows, provide medical assistance to the marginalized sector of the society, and many other social services geared to assist the poor.
He is also one of the key supporters of the Kamanggagawa Foundation (Co-Worker Foundation), which first started as an organization dedicated to providing child care and feeding programs to the poor. Bro. Eli was touched by the documentary he watched about the malnourished children in the Payatas (Smokey Mountain) and Baseco compounds in Manila. He was moved to tears seeing the children having nothing to eat during recess in school. Upon seeing the television program, he resolved to facilitate feeding centers in these depressed areas of the country.
Feeding the hungry, looking after widows and orphans and giving shelter to the homeless are all included in Bro. Eli’s concerns. James 1:27 says – “Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world” (KJV). In Matthew 25:32-40, the Lord Jesus Christ said that when these acts are rendered to the least of His brethren they are, in effect, being done to Him. This is the reason why despite his meager resources, Bro. Eli strives hard to establish a number of orphanages in various parts of the country so that orphans and widows could be taken care of. Today, he maintains more than 20 orphanages located in the National Capital Region, in the province of Pampanga, and in some parts of the Visayas and Mindanao regions.
