The people of the Philippines have enjoyed better health in recent years thanks to improved healthcare facilities provided by the government and non-governmental organizations. Yet, in impoverished rural areas such as Northern Samar, healthcare facilities are still poorly equipped to provide appropriate medical treatment, claiming many lives even today. Delivery rooms for babies are also in short supply, endangering the lives of mothers and newborn babies in case of complications. We are building and enhancing medical service to save the lives of the people in impoverished rural areas.
