On this page we will display photographs of people who are in some way involved in Hope Connect.

Kim Tio-Kalinowski (right) was born in Bulanao, Tabuk, Kalinga, about 10 km from Lacnog. She studied in Tabuk until she went to Manila to take a degree in Nursing. She grew up visiting her grandmother in Agbannawag - a village next to Lacnog. She came to the UK to study when she met her husband, Marek Kalinowski.

Marek is a Polish national who has been residing in the UK since 2006. Marek and Kim met, fell in love and got married in 2010. They currently reside in the southern part of England with their son and are members of Life Church Petersfield. Marek visited the Philippines in 2010 and immediately fell in love with the people and the country.

Marek and Kim visit Poland and Philippines alternately to see their families. Last year they visited Lacnog with their son and felt the calling of God of help the people in the village.
