• 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.

  • Bring Hope Football Initiative

    Objectives: - To bring hope to children within the Refugee Camps- To motivate refugee children and youths to follow their own dreams - To coach children using the highest possible standards through training, mentoring and implementing a person first approach which will allow refugee children to reach their maximum potential in sport or in life- To use professional sports celebrities in the world of football/soccer, Professional Clubs, as well as other sporting icons who are devoted to demonstrate their love for all young people - To make a difference in the lives of refugee children by providing a feeling of belonging, togetherness, personal accountability, team work/team building and life coachingVision: Football is such a unique sport as there are so many disciplines that players have to master I.e. teamwork, personal and team accountability, personal/team focus, understanding information & playing formations, fitness, drive, determination, desire, dedication. Exercise requires stored energy and will ensure the young people are healthy (healthy mind = healthy body)! important life lessons. Lessons such as working hard, being dedicated and relying on others. Sports keeps children and young people engaged mentally and physically rather than engaging in violent or less desirable behaviours. With investment in youth we can protect their future. These children will live more comfortable lives in the region they are most accustomed to and where they have long-standing ties both culturally and religiously. It is truly amazing how football unites all people no matter their creed or religion. It promotes hope, friendship love as well as teaching young people about winning and losing. The commitment to sport is valuable while enduring challenges which most have already been exposed to in much more horrible circumstances will leave them in good stead for the future. Lastly, these children will remain steadfast in their belief the world and its people will help them remain independent, free and safe. Fair Play Sports Management and Football Icon:  Football brings with it international development by providing global education and effecting positive social change. Football crosses geographic, ethnic and religious boundaries. Almost everyone has either played or watched football as it is commonly played throughout much of the world. Football provides a range of benefits to society, producing identifiable results in areas such as health, education, collaboration and community building. Importantly, the game brings joy to the refugees, which moves hearts and minds. It builds character and develops the mind and spirit of the players. Football is a national sport in Kurdistan, which increases the power to mobilise people and energise programs that offer direct impact on the refugees.Beginning the project in two camps which are located in the provinces of Duhok and Erbil, specialised teams of dedicated people from BringHope Humanitarian Foundation Football Initiative will investigate the area and develop their “start-up program”. This program needs to receive funding from the authorities, private sponsors, and other funding agencies to show the World that with dedication and happiness you can build, innovate and BRING HOPE.  We can jointly make and change lives, regardless of race, religion and ethnic background, gender, and physical differences, eliminating tears and fears. We will make a difference using a known process and plan; through professionals with skills and goal setting that will lead to SUCCESS. It will not only bring joy and fun, it will also create jobs and synergies for many local people. Learning to play football not just to win, but to win with grace and style. To “live the dream” and create a culture of fun and excitement. In brief, the project aims to build a bridge between parents and coaches, coaches and children, children and life.  It is our desire to create a place where football can be taught and played engaging children at all levels, where energy is expended in a positive manner and where children feel good about where they live and the friendships they create, lasting friendships made for a lifetime. Initial plan: - Football training includes both technical and tactical elements essential to the game. The individual and team skills vital to success in football are stressed in a competitive environment. The BringHope Humanitarian Foundation Football Initiative   programs are designed to help players perform and execute high level technique while demonstrating a keen insight into the games nuances. A long term goal of the academy is to bring young talents to play at their highest level possible. - Ambassadors from Professional Football Teams visit the Camps. These Professional Football Team Ambassadors take the lead as camp owners initially targeting two of 5 camps (2 camps in Erbil, 2 camps in Duhok and 1 camp in Sulaimaniyah) in Iraqi Kurdistan (see appendix);  - Ankawa camp: Erbil - Baradarash camp: Duhok Safety and Security: Security, both safety (passive hazards) and Security (active threats), are basic needs of people and form an essential part of the project. Children can only concentrate fully on sports when they are in a safe environment. It is especially necessary to work with professional support and qualitative equipment. This professional preparation and coordinated processes ensure events that run on the venues occur without interference or incidents. Security is a dynamic process and not a static one. All written documents will be issued in both English and Kurdish languages for ease of proper communication. Stages of the project: The project consists of three phases, encompassing evaluation on the ground, preparation of required safety instructions, and evaluation of initial actions. - Preliminary phase (one week)     * Evaluation of the camps and requirements regarding safety (Safety & Security).     * Survey of staff needs and their requirements.     * Evaluation of what further events can additionally be carried out in these camps.     * Investigation of what requirements must be met to allow people a safe stay and provide a high subjective feeling. This positive and safe feeling of the protected person contributes significantly to the success of an event.     * - Main phase (two weeks)     * Developing of checklists and emergency instructions to give those people in charge needed tools.     * Training of the involved groups for the event and security services.     * Training Topics include -  number of staff needed at events and training, assess any/all significant constraints. Creating different protection zones (protection zone models), communication requirements (internal / external), mobility, risk points on events, check points at entrance, basic first aid requirements at events, equipment to ensure Security, understanding of fire protection in case of any undesired occurrences, personal protection requirements for high-ranking guests    * Minimum of three major events to support the local authorities’ responsibility for supervision. - Follow-up phase     * Evaluation and adaptation of processes and requirements.     * Retraining and workshops on lessons learned. Sponsorships: Bring Hope Humanitarian Foundation (BHHF) is seeking sponsors from FIFA, UEFA or any legitimate Organisation which is needed to make this Football Project a success. As the Main Objective is to bring HOPE – a successful roll out is the main objective, therefore we have recruited local coaches- FIFA certified and we are seeking areas for soccer fields at a local level. For the 5 camps BHHF takes care of – we are seeking a Total Budget of approximately 950,000 Euro to cover all costs (Table 1).  Safety and Security issues we feel require specialists from Europe with local support of course, to ensure the process is given full and complete attention to details/threats…known or unknown. Funding for this Project will be administered through Bring Hope Humanitarian Foundation (BHHF), headed by President Mariwan Baker, who also holds the title of IIMSAM/UN Goodwill Ambassador (permanent observer to the UNs economic and social council).  With the income created through this competitive market activity the poorest of the poor will be helped and every single player (boy or girl) will recognise, understand, and feel how to help each other as they seek and display friendship and love for each other.  Number and age of players per camp: - Under 9 Year-Old (Y.O.) (40 Players; boys and girls) - 9-13 Y.O.                      (40 Players; boys and girls) - 14-18 Y.O.                    (70 Players; boys and girls) - Total: 150 players /camp  - 5 camps x 150 = 750 players
