Care for the Sick Fund
The Care for the Sick Fund aims to provide proper care for the poor sick, of all ages, who are suffering from malnourishment, diseases or disabilities, so as to give them a quality life. This fund will also promote health literacy for preventing sicknesses.
The World Health Organization (WHO) refers to the Filipino Healthcare System as “fragmented” with unequal access to health services. Many do not get access to basic healthcare. Those below the poverty line do not have access to basic healthcare. Unable to receive proper treatment and prevent diseases, they are in serious need of direct financial and medical assistance for help.
The underprivileged also has a low level of health literacy and requires health education to learn about maintaining a healthy lifestyle, and the benefits of staying healthy.
