Summary

5 years ago in 2014, 49 of our first 50 patients in Manila became cancer free. We have since added House of Hope Center in Davao, Mindanao. AAI provides life saving nutrition and healing gifts for 100 children with cancer at HoH and for 100 children with genetic diseases at the Philippine Society for Orphan Disorders in Manila. Their families often earn less than $5 per day. The program includes nutrition, art supplies, story books and toys to instill positive attitudes, love and care.

Challenge

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

Solution

Our partner hospitals provide cancer medication free of charge in a systematic manner. AAI supports children receiving treatment by supplementing nutrition to aid in full recovery and to increase their lifespan. Books and educational materials are supplied to give hope for the future. This is especially important for young children who need care and guidance. Our art programs conducted in hospital wards build a joyful attitude to embrace life and enhance their healing process.

Long-Term Impact

This program is an international model of donor kindness and corporate social responsibility. By surviving and experiencing hope, the multi-ethnic children inspire their neighbors who live in large ghetto communities. For children living in dire poverty, the influence of violent crime and militant extremism is a constant reality. This holistic program can empower entire communities to have hope; every life matters and it is possible to succeed against all odds.
