How we come up to this idea? We or Filipinos is now on the era what we called the "OFW PHENOMENON". Because of rapid growth of economy and we want a good source of income for our family, we go abroad to work. But this has an implications and consequences and one problem we see is that if affects the Family, not only physically but also emotionally, psychologically and spiritually. Husband-wife relationship is significantly strained. And parent-child relationship tremendously suffers too. But this problem can be solve, how? if we put a middle man on it, and who is the best middle man? The Ministry!!! and who are this ministries, this are the priets, missionaries, pastors etc. that can give guidance or stand in between the OFW and its family.

So we developed a web app called Douleuo. Douleuo is a greek word meaning to serve someone which the word ministry is derived from. Its a ministry portal for OFW and its family to easily reach out for ministries.


  • Enable to search for ministry nearest to OFWs and Families to reach out.
  • Contact directly the ministry via direct message or sms.
  • Ministries has also expenses, we can help them, how? via donation, we provided a donation feature.
  • Ministry is also a human being, they also feel how an OFW feel so we provide a report for the ministry to locate nearest OFW/Member of the site.
