Cancer treatment for 20 children and 30 women



This program provides life saving medicines for 20 children with cancer and 30 women, especially mothers and grandmothers with breast cancer whose families earn less than $5 per day. The program includes an art component to instill positive attitudes, love and care. In addition, the program also provides essential literacy and basic livelihood training to help the women to overcome their family's dire poverty and whose unexpected survival can inspire their communities.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

People in much of the under-developed world, such as the Philippines, are unable to afford medical care for life-threatening diseases or access to life-saving medicines. Quality medical care does not exist, and travel to specialized clinics is too expensive. In addition, severe poverty and malnutrition afflict more than 60% of the population. Healing from cancer involves more than medicine; it requires a more positive and joyful attitude which is difficult to develop in impoverished communities.

How will this project solve this problem?

By providing medication free of charge to the patients in a systematic manner, we can give the women undergoing cancer treatment a chance to fully recover to increase their lifespan and receive education and job skills. This is especially important for mothers receiving treatment whose young children need their care and guidance. For child patients, art programs conducted in hospital cancer wards building a joyful attitude to embrace life and value education to enhance their healing process.

Potential Long Term Impact

This program serves as an international model that enhances corporate social responsibility. By surviving, and experiencing Hope, the 20 children and 30 women inspire their neighbors in large ghetto communities. Adult literacy and education will enable surviving women to provide better lives for their families. For children living in dire poverty the influence of violent crime and militant extremism is a constant temptation. This modest holistic program can empower entire communities.
