Give A Life


Charitable causes for children are the closest to my heart. I feel very sad everytime I see a street child begging for money in the streets or rummaging a pile of garbage in search of food. This has become a common sight these days. When I was a kid, there were not that many streetchildren roaming around. I feel blessed for not having to experience this painful reality of life, and so I want to be of help to them in my own little way. But there are also a group of children that we tend to neglect because we do not see them around. It is precisely because they are sick and they are poor. Most of the diseases that afflict these kids are treatable if only they have access to proper healthcare and medicines. We can do something. Give A Life is one foundation we can support to help the children especially the sick one.

What is Give A Life Foundation?

Give A Life Foundation is a children's charity for the underprivileged sick and dying in the Philippines. The primary goal is to replace and upgrade the equipment used in the pediatric wards. The foundation has also created a new cost-effective and efficient systems for access to medicines, like antibiotics, cancer drugs, medical supplies, disinfectant, and soap for the very poorest cases.

How can I help the poor children?

Their office is located at 1191 Vito Cruz Ext., Makati City 1200 Philippines.

The sick and dying children need your urgent help. Please help spread the word about the foundation.


When I approach a child, he inspires in me two sentiments: Tenderness for what he is, and respect for what he may become. - Louis Pasteur (1822-1895)
