ANCOP is the acronym for "Answering the Cry of the Poor". It is a program founded by Couples for Christ as part of its global efforts of Building the Church of the Poor. ANCOP pursues programs to help the poorest of the poor in the Philippines, especially in depressed areas. Among the active programs are the Child Sponsorship Program (CSP) and the Shelter Program. CSP enables sponsors to send children to school (elementary, high school and college level). The shelter program builds homes for our poor brethren.
