Curing Eugene

Six-year-old Eugene was riddled with a variety of debilitating medical issues including tuberculosis, malnutrition and worms.  However, Eugene’s parents had exhausted their finances trying to treat their son at the hospital, and now sat with him at home, listening to his breathing become more labored each day.

Rescuing Children from Malnutrition

By providing nutrient-enriched food packs, ICM’s Home-based Feeding program returns clinically malnourished children to a healthy weight, and helps them achieve optimum physical and mental development. In 2016-2017, ICM’s Home-based Feeding program restored 1,043 malnourished children to healthy weight.

Medical Mercy Fund

ICM’s Medical Case Program allows Transform family members in need of critical medical care to receive required treatments and patient care. In 2016-17, ICM was able to provide non-surgical medical assistance to 1,894 patients and life-changing surgeries to 221 people.

Health Treatments

We screen all Transform participants for health issues and provide treatment packs for common issues.

Tuberculosis: The Philippines is ranked 9th in the world in TB prevalence. ICM refers symptomatic patients for further treatment.

Pregnancy and Newborn: Almost half of all under-five deaths occur in the first 28 days of life. We help high-risk mothers prepare for a safe delivery.

Diarrhea: 4th leading cause of death among children under five in the Philippines. We provide children with treatment packs to rehydrate and provide nutrients that have been lost.

Skin Diseases: Dirty water, hot weather, and unclean environments lead to skin infections and infestations. Treatment packs provide relief and treatment.

Values

Hope is the key: progress out of poverty must start with the belief that change is possible. The Biblical Values in Transform foster attitudes and behaviour change that build relationships.

Transform strengthens social networks, builds families relationships and fosters self-esteems and confidence.

Livelihood

The biggest problem the poor face is a lack of reliable income. Transform helps mothers provide for their kids by earning more money through small business, and save for the future.

Parents and children save money in micro-savings groups, building up capital to launch bigger business ideas and access additional sources of funding.

Education

Children in poverty desperately want to learn but struggle at school from day one. Transform brings education into the home, allowing parents to become their children’s first teachers.

Invested and engaged from the very beginning of their child’s learning, parents encourage their children to start and remain in school.
