For 25 years, Kythe Foundation has provided over 11,000 indigent children with cancer and chronic illness a year, a semblance of a “normal” childhood while they undergo treatment in the hospital. This is done by way of the meaningful partnership through the corporate social responsibility efforts of Companies, individuals and volunteers in the following partner hospitals:
Metro Manila: Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP Medical Center); National Children’s Hospital; Philippine Children’s Medical Center (PCMC); Quirino Memorial Medical Center (QMMC), Luzon: Tarlac Provincial Hospital (TPH), Visayas: Perpetual Succor Hospital – Cebu Cancer Institute, Mindanao: Southern Philippines Medical Center.
The recovery of the child-patient is Kythe’s priority. Through this program, assistance for necessary medical procedures, medicines, laboratory and other expenses are allocated with the hope of providing the child-patient a continuing healing process.
A commitment of $118 (PHP6,000) a month for a year will help facilitate medical procedures such as blood transfusions, x-rays, CT scans. It will also cover expenses for medicines, antibiotics and fare necessary for the child’s medical protocol.
Adopt A Playroom
Kythe's Child Life Program offers children in hospitals a safe space where they can play and learn. The playrooms of Kythe offer a wide variety of toys, books, arts and crafts, construction materials and other treats for the children to enjoy. With the volume of children served by Kythe each day and the boundless energy and thirst of children for play activities, these play spaces need to constantly be equipped with sufficient supplies and materials. Your monthly contribution of $118 (PHP6,000) will help keep Kythe's play activities fun for the children, as it will maintain an adequate supply of toys and materials in one Kythe playroom for one month. Help us serve the children in the best possible way, by allowing them to learn, play and grow even when they are in the hospital.
Burdened with the expenses endured during chemotherapy and other medical expenses, education for children who have triumphed over the illness takes a back seat. In an effort to deliver a more holistic care to our patients, Kythe survivors’ program aims to provide educational assistance to the patients who are willing to continue their studies or pursue a college degree.
A monthly commitment of $118 (PHP6,000) shall cover the daily allowance of the student including transportation, meals and other expenses that would be incurred.
One of the deterring factors of compliance to medical treatment is the fare expense in going to the hospital for regular check-ups. Child patients lose follow up treatments due to lack of financial means in pursuing medical protocol that worsens the child’s health condition.
A donation of $118 (PHP6,000) a month for a year will help children comply to medical treatment. This will also cover attendance to hospital activities where the children can learn, play and enjoy childhood.
Tithe for Kythe
To help augment resources needed to provide medicines for the children, Kythe reaches out to donors to commit a monthly donation of $9.8(PHP500), $19.55(PHP1000), and $39.10 (PHP2000)for a year.
The support will extend to antibiotics, chemo therapy medicines and topical anesthesia for IV insertions, Bone Marrow Aspiration and Intrathecal procedures.
