Project Report | Jun 9, 2023
Medical, Nutrition and Academic Updates

By Aileen Eunicia P. Balon-Abaca | Resource Mobilization Officer

A total of thirty-nine (39) children were provided with various services from February to May of this year, including nine (9) babies who were provided with milk formula. The other thirty (30) older children were given balanced and nutritious food such as protein sources, fruits and carbohydrates.

Eight (8) children ages one (1) year and seven (7) months old to three (3) years and eight (8) months old underwent Autism assessment and evaluation by a Developmental Pediatrician. An in-house Occupational therapist was contracted to provide the necessary services to the children. Each of the six (6) children completed approximately seven (7) sessions. These sessions resulted an improvement in their fine and motor skills; active participation in structured learning activities; reduced tantrums; enhanced initiative in expressing their needs and desires; and increased interest in attending day care. Additionally, they became more independent in activities like brushing their teeth and toilet training.

Health was a challenging aspect during this period, as twelve (12) out of the thirty-nine (39) children experienced various symptoms including colds, cough, rapid shallow breathing, fever and loose bowel movements. Unfortunately, one (1) child suffered from severe Pneumonia and Myocarditis, requiring him to be hooked to a ventilator and confined in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU). This medical challenge used up the medical budget for the entire year, but we are immensely grateful that the child is recovering now.

Regarding education, fourteen (14) children are regularly attending school. This however was challenging for those children who could not attend daycare and kindergarten because of the COVID-19 pandemic. These children are more curious and adventurous about the school environment and this required increased monitoring by the social workers and houseparents. Continuous and increased coordination with the kids’ advisors and subject teachers also became necessary. The 2022-2023 school year is expected to end on the first week of July.

Thank you for your continued support and love that we are able to hurdle the challenges that cropped up during the past months.
