Out of the 90+ million people living in the Philippines, many do not get access to basic care and as a consequence the Philippines has a high maternal and newborn mortality rate. The poor are especially vulnerable to poor health conditions since they have limited access to care facilities, which are already understaffed.
Many young Filipinos face treatable diseases like pneumonia, diarrhea, and measles, as well as neo-natal conditions. These diseases are impacted by nutritional deficiencies that are becoming increasingly common and are still among the biggest causes of child deaths in the Philippines. There is also a high rate of obesity with heart disease.
One of the ways Give Children Hope’s global programs assist children who live in poverty is by educating poor families on the importance of proper nutrition, hygiene, and sanitation. We have implemented a Nutrition Month to get children excited about eating right, and we work hard to ensure that healthy meals are the standard for all the children we provide support to.
A donation to Give Children Hope gives a hungry child critical food, health and nutrition assistance, clean water, and a chance to receive an education. PLEASE HELP an impoverished child or family with a sponsorship!
