Philippines - Mental health aid for children in slums
With odds stacked against them, children living in the slums face a harsh reality at a young age. As poverty keeps knocking on their door, they can struggle to access even the basics in life such as a proper home, sufficient food, water, and quality education. Dangers such as mixing with bad company, addictions, emotional struggles and more can harm their mental wellbeing. Building mental resilience and learning to work through emotions with proper guidance empowers children and youth in slums to get back up stronger.
