Carcellar's "The Homeless Peoples Federation Philippines, Inc. (HPFPI)" provided slum dwellers of Iloilo City and Mandaue City, initiatives to survive poverty. On 2008, it promoted savings in Southeast Asia, since the Philippine Federation affiliated with an international network called “Slum/Shack Dwellers International.”famvin.org/en, Trash dump dwellers to home ownersfamvin.org, Systemic Change: Involve the poor at all stages--Florentino floro (talk) 07:19, 14 June 2008 (UTC)

Vincentians[edit]

If they're called Vincentians in English-speaking countries, why are we calling them Lazarists? john k (talk) 00:20, 4 July 2008 (UTC)

Further research: not even doing a search limited to English, "Vincentian" gets about ten times as many hits as "Lazarist" and "Lazarite" put together. john k (talk) 00:21, 4 July 2008 (UTC)

Anyone out there? I'm going to move to "Vincentians" in a few days if nobody shows up to object. john k (talk) 02:47, 7 July 2008 (UTC) ok — Preceding unsigned comment added by 112.201.3.135 (talk) 11:49, 24 September 2011 (UTC)
