Mabuhay St. Francis of Assisi Primary Health Care Program, North Samar
This project is operated in Northern Samar and is also financially supported by the Club’s Welfare Committee over a number of years. Our support is 100% being used for their feeding program of malnourished children. Proper feeding of these children was from the start envisioned to be one of the most important programs in support of their local clinic. Our participation is not only in feeding the children, but also helping them to be de-wormed and provided with vitamins as well as medical support. As per the Sisters, the families of those beneficiaries of the Samar Health Program are extremely happy and thankful for the help extended to them by our Club’s Welfare Committee and hope for the extension of the program since most of them do not have a secured livelihood. North Samar is still considered one of the poorest areas in the country.
