AND HELPING TO SHAPE A BETTER FUTURE...
Seven Sails Foundation
Established in 2012, the Seven Sails Foundation Incorporated is a Philippine-based Non-Profit and Non-Government Organization primarily aimed at giving aid and assistance to under privileged children in the Philippines regardless of ethnicity, religion, political affiliations and gender. We positively respond to the needs of disaster victims, provide community development assistance, feeding programs and medical missions in remote barrios and islands within the Philippine Archipelago.
Specifically, Seven Sails Foundation was established to serve these seven (7) specific functions:
Aid and Assistance to Women
Financial Accountability and Transparency
At Seven Sails Foundation, we believe that stewardship is the key element in every program and in every plan of action we conduct in the barrios and in other depressed suburban communities. We clearly understand that each dollar or peso entrusted to us is transformed into a glimmer of hope for the hundreds of thousands Filipino children who are in pain and who are suffering the consequences of being born in the slums and in the depressed regions of this country. That is why funds are optimized and maximized to ensure that every dollar or peso we receive goes a long way in helping the poor, the helpless and the sick.
We strive to keep overhead expenses to the minimum so that more than 80% of all donations are spent on sustainable programs for the poor, the children, the youth, the women and the environment.
Bring Aid to Leyte
Last June 5, 2014 the Seven Sails Foundation went to the Province of Leyte in the Western Visayan Region of the Philippines for the third wave of giving aid and assistance to the victims of Typhoon “Yolanda” (International Name: “Haiyan”).
A week after the super typhoon hit the said region, we sent over 2,000 packs of relief goods as immediate response to the victims in Tacloban and in December 2013 or month after the typhoon, we held a gift giving project for the children of Barrio San Roque in Tanauan Leyte. More than 1,000 gift bags were distributed to children of different ages and these bags are actually school bags which contained assorted food items, new clothes, new toys and ..
Since 2006 Seven Sails founder and Chairman Ms. Rose B. Baldeo has been sponsoring feeding programs for children. This is her personal effort to supplement the lack of nutrition of under privileged children in the Philippines.
In the 2013 national nutrition survey of the Food and Nutrition Research Institute (FRNI), data gathered revealed that malnutrition among Filipino children is still prevalent. The study's findings, shared with the public recently, categorized children based on age, namely: 0 to 5 years old and 5 to 10 years old.
Results showed that 15.9% or two out of 10 children from 0 to 47 months old were born with low birth weight or were less than 5.5 lbs.
