• Water System for Indigent Families

    Malasin in Dupax Del Norte, Nueva Vizcaya, Luzon is a community of farmers. A water system is needed by 90 families who are far from the water source. They climb down a mountain, about 200 meters high, to reach the current water source which is a 50 year old manual water pump. Dreey Angelo Barte is one of the youth who is from this community. He is a Grade 8 student of Malasin High School and dreams to be a chef. His family relies on him and he is responsible for the daily fetching of water which is 200 meters downhill away from their home. He is just one of the many children & youth who risk their lives everyday to get water for their families. If a water system is provided for this community, their standard of living will greatly improve.

  • Nutritional Feeding Program for HIV Patients

    The overall goal of the project is to contribute in the improvement of the quality of life of persons living with HIV (PLHIV) by initiating a strategic approach to improve their health status through urgent nutritional support to indigents and other needy PLHIVs in the treatment facilities and communities. Hospital and home visits to them and their affected families are conducted. Aside from food and supplements, expenses for emergency medical support such as necessary laboratory fees are likewise provided, in cooperation with the hospitals to which consent for giving of confidential-data is given by the patient. Nutrition plays a key role in health and wellness of all individuals. Optimal nutrition – eating the right type and amount of food in the right combination – is a critical component of comprehensive prevention, care and treatment for individuals with HIV and AIDS. Nutrition and HIV and AIDS are cyclically related. When the body’s immune system breaks down as a result of HIV or AIDS, this can contribute to malnutrition and susceptibility to infection. These infections can result in diarrhea, malabsorption, poor appetite and weight loss. Therefore, malnutrition can contribute to and be a result of HIV disease progression. Conversely, a person who is well-nourished is more likely to maintain a stronger immune system for coping with HIV and fighting infection. Optimal nutrition is also an important component of the response to chronic diseases that are becoming increasingly prevalent among individuals with HIV and AIDS.Compared to the national population of 102 million Filipinos, a small segment of people infected with HIV (PLHIV) may be negligible. However, according to official records and observations of care-and-support organizations, there is a significant upsurge of HIV cases up to the current year, harming the productive sector of youth and young people, males having sex with males (MSM), displaced migrant workers and the troublesome people who inject drugs (PWID) at certain locations of the country. Previously in 2006-2007, there is an average one case per day, two in 2009. On the average, five cases per day has been reported, but as of November 2016 the figure climbed to a staggering one case every hour and eight seconds, or roughly 26 cases a day.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Request for Medical Supplies for the PEARLS Health Clinic in Tondo

        In the summer of 2015, two young brothers, Mario and Marco, got food poisoned from “pagpag”. Tragically, Marco didn’t make it. His parents didn’t have the money to buy first-aid medicines; they didn’t even have money for fare to bring the two kids to the hospital. They begged neighbors to loan them money but those neighbors are just as poor as they are. Mario, up to this day, is still suffering from hunger and poverty. The tragic death of Marco compelled us to step up our efforts even further, and to go from a weekly feeding program to a daily soup kitchen. Currently, we serve breakfast for around 300 kids in Helping Land. This means the children get at least one healthy and safe meal per day, which in turn will hopefully prevent another deadly incident because of food poisoning.     Since Marco’s death, there are several other young children who died from complications of malnutrition, and mainly from extreme poverty. Project PEARLS' effort in providing one healthy meal is not enough to keep these children healthy and alive. Immediate access to free medicines and healthcare is very urgent.    These devastating events inspired Project PEARLS to implement one of its biggest projects this year – the construction of a Health Care Center in Helping Land, Tondo, Manila.     Helping Land is home to hundreds of families whose main source of livelihood is scavenging from garbage. Due to extreme poverty, a common practice among the residents is to fill their hunger by relying on “pagpag” - leftover food from restaurants that is scavenged from trash. Pagpag literally means “to shake off”, and this refers to shaking the dirt off the food. Without proper nutrition and easy access to medical services, children become victims of malnutrition, dehydration, diarrhea, colds, cough, pneumonia, and other illnesses. Project PEARLS wants to address this problem by providing free and quality health care services in the community. By giving them accessible medical services, we may be able to prevent serious diseases, and even child's death.     The Health Care Center is now almost done, and will be formally opened on July 17, 2016. To provide the needed medical services, we are in need of nonprescription medicines such as paracetamol, decongestants, ibuprofen, multivitamins, and the like.      Any kind of support – cash or in-kind donations – will certainly go a long way in caring for the health and welfare of a child.     Our wish list can be found here.
