A common way for American Missionaries serving in the Philippines to receive a care package is via a Filipino System, is “Balikbayan Boxes“.
A Balikbayan box is a 24″ x 18″ x 24” cardboard box containing small goods sent via special US Shippers to the Philippines. The estimated cost might be $100.00 with no weight limit.


If you would like to know if there is a shipper in your city, please contact Derek Ross at 210 568 9222 or simply google “your city” and  “Balikbayan Box”
