  • We enable schooling for needy children through the distribution of the necessary school utensils for a whole year.
  • We give malnourished children a cooked meal every day at school.
  • We distribute food parcels, rice and other relief directly to families in need.
  • We support single mothers.
  • We finance and buy building materials for private repair of typhoon damage to huts and fishing boats.
  • We secure medical care for ill and injured children.

Every year Rahel Jud personally travels with the collected donations for a few months to the Philippines in order to help the needy children in the fishing village of Caba – La Union. Every year SwissPhilAid distributes school utensils to some 600 needy children to enable them to start school. The necessary school utensils cost 20 Swiss Francs per child and year; an amount that is too high to pay for many families. The children of these families often fall asleep during the lessons due to malnutrition. SwissPhilAid started therefore also a food programme and built a kitchen on the school grounds.
Every day 380 children get a nutritional and warm meal. The cost per child and year is 100 Swiss francs.
The children also receive emergency medical aid. Rice and food parcels and vitamins are being distributed personally to needy families in remote villages.
