VCLS Sponsorship

VCLS is not only a partner for health research but also a support to the wider humanitarian cause.

Sponsorship with Plan International in the Philippines


VCLS_Plan_International

For nearly 3 years, VCLS had been sponsoring 20 children in the Philippines, mostly in the Samar East Zone, which was affected by the Typhoon Haiyan. These children were provided with basic school supplies, improved access to portable water and sanitation. More widely, efforts went to subsidies for the transport and boarding costs for poorer families – to allow children to stay at school – or incentive to create community savings’ groups, promoting the rights of young girls, setting up a Child and Gender Protection Unit, training an emergency response junior team, improving access to health services and health establishment, and supporting for vocational training. VCLS is proud to work with local help groups like Plan International, and the notes we exchange with the children, their parents and their caregivers prove the effort more than worthwhile.
