A little support goes a long way! Jayson, our college student taking BS Psychology, has garnered excellent grades this schoolyear with a General Weighted Average of 1.21! We have been supporting his internet expenses since last year. Recently, he has requested support for his thesis project. We wish him the best in this final requirement:)
The Philippine Leprosy Mission has announced the educational assistance grants funded through GlobalGiving to the Philippine Dermatological Society (PDS) Leprosy Subspecialty group. We call this the "HANsen’s Educational assistance for empowerment Program (HanEP)". "Hanep" is a Filipino slang word that means "amazing" and "cool".
We are asking referrals from the PDS training institutions that have Hansen's Clubs (patient support groups) so that more Persons affected by Leprosy may receive support such as internet load, vocational training tuition, school project support, and others. A letter of endorsement and other required documents will be facilitated by the dermatology training programs and we will partner with them to screen and monitor the recipients of the educational assistance. Partial or full assistance can be given depending on availability of funds. The response from PDS has been very positive and they are grateful for this opportunity.
We hope to reach our target of 30 Filipino Leprosy Patients assisted within 2021! With the continued support of the international community, we can do this!
