Children in the Philippines who live in extreme poverty lack access to quality healthcare. They are often denied assistance and are unable to afford necessities to improve their quality of life.
Meet Akihiro. He is 10 months old.
How Akihiro first got our attention is that his mom messaged us that her child had a serious bacterial infection. His skin was extremely irritated. She was so concerned and thankfully we have a nurse on our team who also wanted to figure out how we could help. The infection thankfully did go away, but during this time, their family situation got worse.
During the pandemic, Akihiro's father left the family. His mom is now a single mother with 3 kids and little to no income.
In every picture that his mom sent, he had no diapers because she can't afford them. They live in a squatter area.
We want to purchase diapers, formula, wipes, vitamins and Cetaphil wash for baby Akihiro.
Let's help this single mother of 3 during a difficult time.
