Children in the Philippines who live in extreme poverty lack access to quality healthcare. They are often denied assistance.
Meet Akiezia. Akiezia has global developmental delay with generalized epileptiform discharge.
Akiezia's mom lost her part-time job of tutoring when the quarantine began back in March and still is unable to work. And the reality is, this mom here is taking care of two daughters, one of whom has special needs. She most likely will not be able to do part-time tutoring any time soon.
The amount they need is $72 for one month's supply of Gain similac, diapers, and vitamins.
