Sylvester Cash Sr. was born, raised, and educated in the ghetto of Baltimore City, MD. He has been working with youth since he was sixteen years old. His vocation and the Marine Corps allowed him the opportunity to work in many countries overseas where he decided to live after retiring from his Civil Service job in 2015.
Mr. Cash has worked with his Masonic family in supporting distressed individuals and families since 1996. He has coordinated relief efforts for typhoon victims in the Philippines, Hurricane victims in the U.S., and earthquake victims in Japan. Since retiring in Thailand, he has assisted in supporting relief efforts at a local refugee facility, blind school, and elderly hospitals and facilities.
During his visit to Angeles City in the Philippine, God put it on Sylvester’s heart to help mentor a local youth group called the Knights of Pythagoras. They are all Filipino and their ages range from 8-20 years of age. Some of them are bilingual and come from families that are living below the poverty level. Some of them reside in homes made from plywood and corrugated metal for roofs and other poorly designed dwellings, but to meet them you would never know it. They live in a merciless and corrupt culture, where if you are poor, the chances are you will remain poor.
This pandemic has hit them far beyond those of families in better economic conditions. For more information and to learn how you can help, please click here.
