In 1981, the Brothers of Charity started looking after physically disabled children in the Philippines. Later, they developed support for children with intellectual disabilities and children with hearing impairments. A great deal of effort went into the formation and training of young brothers, which took on a renewed international dimension.

Today, the brothers and their staff are involved in the care of people with mental disorders in Bicol and Gingoog, and in the education of children and adolescents with intellectual disabilities in Pandacan, Manila. The formation and training of Asian novices takes place in the Philippines, as well, in two international houses of formation in Bicol and Tagaytay.
