• 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 :

  • Surf our way to Save the Environment!

       In 2008, a group of die hard surfers discovered the site where Lola Sayong is currently situated. While enjoying the challenge brought about by the swell, they noticed that they are with local surfers who are out of school youths (OSYs). With the drive to help them finish studies, the group of Gubatnon for Adventourism Incorporated was established. The primary goal is to get funding through surfing and help the OSY surfers and ultimately the OSY of the community to finish schooling. As of date, Lola Sayong is one of the newest places to be in Sorsogon especially for backpackers and millennial. It was recently ranked second of the six places to be in Sorsogon. With the bulk of millennial visiting the place, there is a reason to enhance the camp area especially in terms of sanitation while still preserving the laid back ambiance.    There is a need for funding on the construction of comfort rooms and shower rooms. There is also a need to find a good source of water and have a water pump installed. With the continuous media exposure of the good Samaritan surfers, it is timely if they can have rush guards to serve as their uniform as to emphasize their identity of a good heart. With a more enhanced Lola Sayong Surf Camp, more tourists will come which means more OSY will be able to go back to school.WHAT WE NEED!- Kitchen Dining Facility (Php 420,000.00)- Lodging Enhancement (Php 600,000.00)- Toilet Bath Facility (Php 480,000.00)

  • 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.

  • TB Treatment Support to Keep Kids in School

    Children in the communities we serve are highly vulnerable to absenteeism from school due to chronic illness and lack of successful treatment. Due to their extreme poverty, highly dense communities, and the toxic environment of the dumpsites where they live, the public health services available to them are under-funded and overwhelmed with demand. Students are often unable to get the early medical attention they need or complete their treatment as medically required. As a result, our communities experience high incidences of student dropouts, grade repeaters, and underperformance when they are in school due to treatable illnesses. Two common illnesses in the children we serve is (i) the tuberculous infection called “primary complex” and upper respiratory infections, which lead to a host of other health and medical issues, especially malnutrition. Primary complex is found in children exposed to mycobacterium tuberculosis in an adult. The child remains healthy and usually has no symptoms until their immune system declines and the disease becomes active. If primary complex is left untreated, it may eventually evolve into active tuberculosis. Primary Complex is a 6 month long daily treatment at a registered health facility, which is often interrupted in the poorest patients due to financial and time constraints unless there are adequate social supports and convenient treatment centers. Medicine must be given every day for 6 months. If not, the bacteria evolves and develop into a more med-resistant kind. Children with symptomatic cases of primary complex have a compromised immune system and often require treatment for other illnesses. Children need convenient, efficient access to medical services and treatment to ensure they recover from their illness and with the least interruption to their schooling.  In our years of experience, we learned that extremely poor children need additional health and nutrition interventions to boost their school attendance and performance. We provide students with free, nutritional breakfast and lunch every school day and monitor their height and weight monthly. We also operate a clinic in our Tondo center and have mobile services in our other centers. Our health and human services and programs support our educational programs by providing psycho-social support, crisis intervention, medical care, and nutrition programs to all our students and their families living in the communities of Smokey Mountain and Barangay 105 dumpsite.

  • Make Childbirth Safer for Mothers in Palawan

    The island village of Manamoc is some 4 hours away by outrigger boat from mainland Cuyo Municipality. Whenever there are health emergencies, the government-trained midwife can only do so much first aide and have to send patients to mainland Cuyo. Oftentimes, patients die on their way to the only  District Hospital available in Cuyo. In Manamoc, a newly constructed multi-purpose facility was converted to Health Station and Birthing Clinic to comfortably cater to the basic health requirement of the island residents especially pregnant women and children. The Health Station however, needs birthing equipment to fully cater to pregnant women reducing risk of mother and infant mortality in the island.     Pasay
