Top 5 People Groups
Central Bikol: 4,215,000
The Philippines is a collection of 700 inhabited islands with Luzon being the largest. It is home to 201 People Groups, 30 of whom remain unreached according to the Joshua Project. The Philippines is predominately Christian with one important exception. The Moro people are traditionally devout Muslims and seek a separate Muslim nation in the parts of the Philippines where they dominate. In addition to this Christians in the Philippines must contend with various cults which claim to be Christian but have adopted false teachings.
Christian Aid supports several indigenous mission groups in the Philippines, for example missionaries who give comfort to the orphaned and neglected among the Islamic Yakan tribe.
