Valentines for Children With Rare Diseases and International Rare Diseases Day

Sharing treatment and Grandma
Sharing treatment and Grandma's Love @ PSOD

This Valentine Day we are very honored to be part of Global Giving's "How to Say I Love You" in 91 Countries program via the Gloabl Giving website.  We are representing the Philippines with our Cancer and Rare Diseases healing program to assist some very special adorable children to overcome the challenges of rare life threatening diseases.  We are honored to work as partners with the treatment and residential centers at the Philippine Society for Orphan Disorders in Manila and the House of Hope in Davao.  We provide supplemental nutrition such as powdered milk and Pediasure multi-vitamin drinks and medical supplies for more than 300 children every month in 2016.  Global giving donors have been a major part of our teamwork for success enabling us to spend around $700 per month to purchase the nutritional support and any supplemental medicines needed for the children's strength and well being.  We have the funds needed for the first six months of 2016 and are seeking expanded donor support to cover the second half of this year's program.

In addition, we are fortunate to have the support of local hospitals in the United States to donate clinical and hospital room supplies to help make the children more comfortable and to take the financial burden from their parents, all of whom survive below the poverty line.  

On Fenbraurty 29, 2016 advocates for children with Rare and Orphan Diseases  are celebrating a day of international awareness around the world.  We hope to make a new delivery of supplies and nutritional support to PSOD and House of Hope on that day as a message to the children and their care providers of our commitment and love.

Ms. Janet Francisco, a PSOD coordinator, is also the mother of a child with special needs.  She speaks for all families of the children being treated in Manila. Janet says, "The dedication and caring shown by our friends at AAI and all of their donors has been a Godsend to  us. We never imagined that there were such kind people who never even met us who would show such encouragement and support in our time of need. We welcome your continued support."
