Overview

The Story

Project MIND (Mental Health Intervention for Children in Need or Affected by Disasters) aims to bridge the gap in providing vital psychosocial support services for children and families, particularly in disaster-affected areas. By establishing a network of dedicated psychosocial support volunteers and making essential services accessible, we can make a deep impact on the mental health and well-being of children in need.

According to the National Baseline Study on Violence Against Children, 2016, 8 out of 10 Filipino children experience some form of violence in their lifetime. This alarming statistic emphasizes the urgency to address child welfare and protection. Your support can provide a lifeline to these children, offering them safety, healing, and the opportunity to break the cycle of abuse.
