Summary

This project will provide help to physically disabled children from impoverished Filipino families by developing a treatment plan, locating and providing services needed to change the life and future of a child. With our partners and service providers we can get treatment free or at a reduced cost. We provide funds for doctor exams, x-rays, health insurance, physical therapy, prosthetics, orthotics, and travel expenses for a child and one parent.

Challenge

In the Philippines, more than a fifth of the population live in poverty, most have a low level of education and strong beliefs. Having a disabled child in this situation makes the child an object of discrimination, isolation, and ridicule. Often, they are pulled out of school and this ends their hope for a productive life. There are very few sponsored government resources to help these children, so they often end up with little hope, a limited future and completely relying on their family.

Solution

Many families do not have the skills or the means to coordinate with doctors or suppliers. We accompany parents in obtaining a professional diagnosis for their child's condition, including x-rays. We purchase health insurance for the family to assist our partners with their cost. We work with partners to provide therapy, orthotic or prosthetic devices prescribed. If surgery is prescribed, we cover all expenses of travel, housing and food for child and parent to Tebow Cure Hospital in Davao.

Long-Term Impact

We currently have identified 15 disabled children who we hope to help during 2019. Providing the appropriate treatment for their physical disabilities will provide these children hope for a better life, allowing them to become productive members of their families and communities and shedding the stigma of being a burden. Your help will allow these children to participate in the education process and become productive members of society.
