Ensure healthcare for children from slums in the Philippines

Ensure healthcare for children from slums in the Philippines

Philippines 4 Contributors Launched June 16, 2018 Funding ends:30-07-2019

The challenge

Almost half of the urban population in the Philippines lives in slums. This is the case in Cebu City, one of the country’s most populated cities, where sanitary conditions for many inhabitants are precarious. Almost a quarter of the population still doesn’t have access to proper sanitation. Lacking access to clean water and basic healthcare, many children in the Philippines suffer from a variety of illnesses common to a life in the slums, such as tuberculosis and malaria.

 

Thanks to the establishment of local health clinics, families can benefit from free medical consultations. However, they can rarely afford the cost of even the most basic medication and hygiene supplies, leaving treatable conditions such as coughs, respiratory infections and diarrhoea to develop into harmful or potentially fatal illnesses, such as pneumonia or tuberculosis.

 

In poor health, girls’ school attendance risks becoming sporadic or halted entirely. 

The solutions we’re proposing

W4’s field program runs educational programs for young children from Cebu City’s slums in order to give them a better start in life.

 

Through this program, children are also provided with essential basic medicine, and medical care in the event of illness, as well as hygienic kits containing soap, shampoo, toothbrushes and toothpaste. 

The impact of giving

Your donation will help children to remain in good health and pursue their education. Offer children in the Philippines with the access to healthcare, hygiene and education needed to escape poverty.
