Angeline's Story

ADRA's new project in the Philippines will improve access to health care

Angeline lives in a small village (barangay) on an island in the Philippines.

There is no health care on her island.  To get to the nearest clinic she must take a two to three hour boat ride to the mainland.  

ADRA's project will improve maternal, newborn, and child health in her village.

Experience a bit of her life by watching this video.
