18,000+ Pregnant Women, Infants, and Young Children to Benefit from the Initiative

In many low-income municipalities in the country, residents have little to no access to free and quality prenatal and postnatal care which consequently puts the lives of many expecting mothers and eventually, their young children at greater risk.

That is why in October 2021, Health Futures Foundation, Inc. (HFI), in collaboration with Vitamin Angels, distributed a total of 1,243 bottles of Vitamin A, Albendazole, and prenatal vitamins to six (6) partner communities: Capul and Lavezares in Northern Samar, Salcedo in Eastern Samar, Motiong in Samar, and San Luis and Taal in Batangas, in response to the growing health care needs of pregnant women, infants, and young children in these municipalities.

Delivery of vitamins and supplements in Brgy. 5 Poblacion Barangay Health Station (BHS), Capul, Northern Samar
Delivery of vitamins and supplements in Lavezares Municipal Health Office (MHO), Northern Samar

Delivery of vitamins and supplements in Taal MHO, Batangas with Pansol ALAGA CHN Khrystynne Manalo
