AAI supports patients in Manila, with 49 of our first 50 patients now cancer free. We are now adding the Hope Center in Davao, Mindanao to help doctors provide life saving medicines and nutrition for women and children with cancer and for children with rare genetic diseases. This program includes art supplies, story books, and toys to instill positive attitudes, love, and care for these children. The combination of ethnic conflict and natural disasters have intensified the suffering of millions of Filipino people, especially children. This program empowers elementary schools in regions where children are victims of typhoons or armed conflict. Full community involvement teaches students the essential skills of literacy, craftsmanship, gardening, and healthy cooking needed for holistic economic progress and peace. There are currently some 9 million people in the Philippines devastated by the cataclysmic Super-Typhoon Haiyan [locally named Yolanda]. AAI partners with local and international groups conducting emergency relief, providing food and water to thousands of families. We purchase bulk supplies in local markets along with hygiene products, medicines, and other life-saving materials.
