Give A Life Foundation children’s charity is for the under-privileged sick and dying in the Philippines. It supports pediatric hospitals by providing life saving medicines and medical equipment. Give a Life also renovates the children’s wards in hospitals. Springboard Foundation was able to attract sponsors like DSM Nutritional Products, Nickelodeon, Financial Times and Bosch to finance some of these renovations, which includes the replacement of old rusty baby bassinets with brand new stainless steel ones. Electrical wiring was replaced, air-conditioning units installed, walls and floors redone and brand new lighting fixtures were installed. Together with the free medicines that the children receive from Give a Life Foundation, they have hope to win their battle with diseases such as cancer and infections. Give a Life has also created a new, cost effective and efficient system for access to medicines, antibiotics, cancer drugs, medical supplies, disinfectants and soaps for the very poorest cases.
