• PAFPI Sustainable Shelter Project

    PAFPI has been instrumental in ensuring free Anti Retroviral treatment for HIV for all Filipinos. Our efforts have, however, not ended with this success. The free ARV treatment means that many more people can survive than ever before. They are often met with rejection by friends and family. Many are kicked out of their home and find themselves alone in the streets.For more than 15 years, PAFPI has provided temporary shelter for thousands of vulnerable people living with HIV and their families. PAFPI's Abot–Kamay Drop–in Center (AK) and Bahay Kanlungan (BK, literally "home –care") provide a half-way home for these persons during a very difficult time in their lives.Through a drop-in center PAFPI will contribute to a vision of a world where people living with HIV live healthy lives free from prejudice and discrimination.Those who have benefited from this project include families with children, deported and returning Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs), as well those people from the provinces who need to access ARV treatment and medical check-up in the cities. These centers also serve as venues for PAFPI-sponsored trainings, seminars and one-on-one counseling and HIV and treatment information.The demands for these services are booming due to the increasing infection rate. We are working to ensure that the shelters will be sustainable on a long-term basis.

  • Shelter Kits for Super Typhoon Haima (Lawin) victims

    Super Typhoon Lawin (Haima), the strongest cyclone to hit the Philippines last October 2016 in   three years, made its destructive power evident in Cagayan Province when it toppled power       lines, unroofed houses, damaged infrastructures and devastated agriculture extensively. Last November 2016, New Life Community Care Foundation was able to provide shelter            materials to 65 families in Barangay Quibal, Peñablanca and Barangay Lanna, Enrile both in      Cagayan Province. These families include aetas and their widows who are marginalized and        seldomly reached by government assistance.   Three months since the disaster, calamity aids dwindled, as some relief agencies/NGOs shift       their focus on new areas in need of support.  However, the need for shelter assistance remains     imminent.  Many families still live in damaged houses covered in tarps. Majority are still waiting  for government assistance. It is in circumstances like these where NLCOM steps in and provide rapid solutions. This is what   this campaign is all about.  Your donation will enable us to go to the far flung areas and provide shelter kit materials to 150 families. Join us in this campaign.

  • HELP CHRISTMAS TRAGEDY VICTIMS, BUILD TYPHOON-RESILIENT HOMES IN BRGY. SALVACION

    On 25 December 2016, super typhoon “Nina” (international name: Nock-ten) slammed Camarines Sur, striking the province with gusts up to 250 kilometers per hour and heavy rains. Nina is the strongest typhoon to hit the Bicol Region in ten years. The sight was anything but merry a day after Christmas: wrecked houses in pools of mud, toppled electric posts and darkness engulfing the province as evening fell. Camarines Sur was immediately placed under a state of calamity. The province sustained damages amounting to more than Ten Billion Pesos (PhP10,000,000,000.00).Barangay Salvacion in Buhi, Camarines Sur is one of the areas hardest hit by the super typhoon. A total of 257 houses were completely destroyed — leaving thousands of families without a home. Corazon Pacipani, 47, a resident of Barangay Salvacion since she was born, thought she has already seen and prepared for any strong typhoon. In fact, she and her children have taken to their hearts their drill whenever it pours. "We would get our old cans and containers, align them on the floor directly under the holes on our ceiling, and hope for the best the rain miraculously stops soon," shared Corazon's first born. When a typhoon strikes, they would secure their essential belongings and evacuate from their house.Living the Worst Nightmare. However, nothing could prepare Corazon’s family for the wrath of Super Typhoon Nina. "I've never heard winds whistle as loudly as that night. What was supposed to be a day of celebration for families became a day of sorrow for us," Corazon recalled with tears in her eyes. She considers it a Christmas miracle that her family was safe and secured. When her family went back to their house a day after the typhoon, her worst fear was realized — part by part, piece by piece, their house was ravaged, leaving them with absolutely nothing to build from this time. “It has always been our home since we started a family. But now, it's gone. We don't even know where to start now," said Corazon.Time to Rebuild. The massive devastation prompted us, the Bicol River Development Foundation, Inc. to launch this campaign and help Camarines Sur rise again.  New Homes, Rekindled Hope. Our Foundation already initiated rebuilding 35 typhoon-resilient homes —its resilience is afforded by concrete walls and slab roofing that help avoid corrosion and ensure the structure's durability. They are designed to be strong enough to withstand typhoons with sustained winds of 250kph or more and gustiness of up to 300kph. The structure is also sealed waterproof to avoid moisture from getting into the concrete, especially in cases of heavy downpour.On behalf of families like that of Corazon Pacipani, our Foundation appeals to your generosity to help us build more typhoon-resilient homes for 20 families in Barangay Salvacion, Buhi. With its durability and resiliency, each unit costs PhP96,000.00. Rest assured, your donation will not only put up homes for these families; it will also go a long way in providing a permanent feeling of safety and security to the survivors in dire need of stronger and safer houses. Please extend a helping hand, save lives and restore the dignity of Super Typhoon Nina survivors.

  • TREATMENT AND RECOVERY FOR ABUSED CHILDREN

    Since its grass-roots beginnings in 1993, HOPE worldwide Philippines has greatly contributed to the collective effort to prevent, identify and handle child sexual abuse cases, having implemented a model of child welfare and protection system in the Philippines, integrating community-based programs and services along with the prevention, identification and treatment of child sexual abuse. This system of child welfare touches over 100,000 poor children and youth annually and maintains a sustained attack and safety net while tackling long-long term problems that perpetuate child abuse and neglect.One out of 3 Filipino children is a victim of abuse, 30-40% of which is sexual abuse. The country’s child welfare systems are overwhelmed by the needs of abused children and cannot accommodate the growing number of cases requiring residential care and protection. Likewise, only few residential institutions employ a holistic and comprehensive program for the treatment, recovery, and reintegration of abuse children.  To meet this need, HOPE worldwide Philippines established a Treatment and Residential Facility for abused children in a 2.2-hectare lot in Laguna on 2005.The Center of HOPE-Laguna provides treatment and residential care for sexually abused and neglected children. The center is a therapeutic place for children equipped with school and multi-purpose building, administration offices, playgrounds, gazebo, huge space for outdoor activities and five (5) residential cottages. Up to 10 children can live in one house together with the children’s house parents and social worker staff who provide the love and emotional support, including spiritual formation and academic guidance on-site, the children need. The treatment intervention of each child is being handled by a multi-disciplinary case management team offering a wide range of skills, including psychological and psychiatric assessment.THEIR STORYKaren (12 years old) and Julia (11 years old), were abandoned by their biological mother while they were four (4) and three (3) years of age, respectively. In their mother’s absence, they had given their trust and love to their father who, later on, sexually abused them for many years. The children were rescued from their house and were admitted to the Center of HOPE-Laguna. The perpetrator was charged of his crime and was put to jail where he eventually died. Karen and Julia stayed in the center for a couple of years and became part of HOPE worldwide Independent Living Program where teen age girls live together in one house under a normal community setting to learn independence. According to Karen, “life without a family is difficult and sad, but this will not stop me from reaching my dreams. I am thankful that we can study and go to school. I will study hard because I want to graduate and get a good job in the future.”OUR GOALOur goal is to ensure that abused children receive protection, justice, and lessen the trauma of abuse, and find a loving and supportive family where they can interact constructively and developed a sense of hope which encourages each child to succeed in a normal life community setting. Currently, two residential cottages which can accommodate 20 beneficiaries are in need of financial support for the next project cycle of operation. Presently, 12 children are living in the two cottages. The admission of additional clients will continue upon securing the funds needed for January to December 2017. The monthly cost per beneficiary is P10,000 which will provide each child a safe place to live and will cover other costs such as education, medical care, food, legal case management, psychological treatment, recreation, and other basic services.

  • 44 Days of Healthy Meals for Indigenous Children

    Surallah, South Cotabato in Mindanao is home to hundreds of indigenous children. Most of these beautiful kids are hungry due to poverty. By building a care kitchen which will serve nutritious food, the health of these children will improve. In effect, this will reflect in their educational performance. When their stomachs are full, their minds will be sharp! Request Details:1 meal per day (every lunch time) = Php 16.00Cost for one (1) child for 2 months (44 days) = Php 704.00Target number of meals: 6,600Total target: 150 children for 2 months (44 days) = Php 105,600.00Kusina ng Kalinga (KnK) continuously operates to feed students throughout the school year.You may sponsor a child for one school year for only Php 3,520.00. Agustina, a Barangay Councilwoman, says that “We have indigenous children here whose parents' work can only sustain their daily needs. Most of the time it isn't enough for the whole family. There are days that these children don't go to school because they don't have anything to eat. There are times that they still attend classes despite having empty stomachs. We would be very grateful if there would be a feeding program implemented. At least for a while, their hunger will be mitigated.” Since a Care Kitchen takes time to build and gather proper resources, the community would like to conduct a 2-month start up feeding program for 150 kids. This means 150 less hungry children from South Cotabato. Every lunch, a free meal will be served from Monday to Friday at their elementary school for two (2) consecutive months. **Learn more about Gawad Kalinga at www.gk1world.com : Cotabato City, SOCCSKSARGEN, Philippines
