  ANNUAL GIFT CATALOGUE REPORT NSP No:National Office: Christian Children’s Fund- Philippines Project Name: Families and Children for Empowerment and Development(FCED) Foundation, Inc. Project ID:Beneficiaries:(Direct/Indirect) 1849239 children – medical check-up83 – undergoing DOTS  Total Budget: Php 202,634.77 Program Duration: October 2007-February 2009 Prepared by:Date Submitted: Ms. Rhea Villarubia and Ms. Norilix A.MansosHealth Coordinator Project Manager July 18, 2008  1.Context/Program Overview There are five areas, namely Barangay 826, 827, 828, 842 and 843,which are supported by the Gift of Love project. These areas were selectedfor the said project because they are the newly adopted communities of theCCF assisted project. They have been supported by CCF since 2004.The communities belong to the urban poor areas of Manila. Thehousing conditions are congested with limited or inadequate ventilation. Thebasic social services provided by the government for health, education,livelihood and social protection are inadequate due to the high populationdensity. With these conditions, the families and the children are vulnerable tomany problems.One of the perennial problems of the said communities is the highincidence of malnutrition. Out of 10 children, three are malnourished andsickly children. Despite the nutrition education and supplemental feedingdone by the project and other organizations in the areas, the progress of theweights of the children is very minimal. Many children are still sickly andmalnourished.To address these issues and to determine the causes of the sicklycondition of the children, FCED conducted a comprehensive medical check-up to all the CCF assisted children. It appears that 34% of the 300 childrenhave primary complex or pulmonary tuberculosis. However, the governmenthas very limited health services. The Health Centers are not providingmedicines for children with Primary Complex because they prioritize givingmedicines to the adults.Through the Gift of Love project, the children were assisted to have athorough medical check-up and they were provided with medicines for at least3 months to 9 months of successive treatments. 2. Objective for item provision and utilization a.Output 1 ã Medical Check-up 1. Three hundred thirty (330) children have completed comprehensivemedical check-up which includes chest x-ray, CBC (Complete BloodCount), PPD/Skin Testing, Urinalysis and Fecalysis. 2. 50% of the 330 children beneficiaries were diagnosed to have beeninfected with Pulmonary Tuberculosis.  b.Output 2 ã Treatment Phase 1. One hundred sixty five (165) children who were diagnosed to havePulmonary Tuberculosis are being treated accordingly. c.Output 3 ã Monthly Check-up/ Follow-up 1. All children who are being treated are to be checked up monthly and theproblems encountered during the treatment process are being addressed. 3.Progress Reviewa.Overall Progress towards gift catalogue outputs andexpected outcome Directly Observed Treatment Short Course (DOTS) project was startedlast October 2007. There were 330 children who were the target beneficiariesfrom the five (5) newly assisted CCF barangays. Out of three hundred thirty (330)children, only 245 underwent the medical check-up which included chest X-ray,CBC (Complete Blood Count), PPD / Skin testing, Urinalysis and Fecalysis.Based on the findings, 103 children were diagnosed to have PulmonaryTuberculosis. However, there are only 83 children who are undergoing thetreatment because the rest refused to cooperate. These children underwentdeworming treatment prior to the administration of PTB medicines. The childrenwere classified as follows with the corresponding duration of treatment: ã Class I(3 months)- 3 children ã Class II(9 months)- 56 children ã Class III(6 months)- 24 children Total: 83 children The parents of children who started the PTB medication signed a waiver ensuring the project that they are aware of their responsibilities through out theduration of the treatment process.The project organized a group of leaders who were called treatmentpartners consisting of twenty one (21) parents to ensure effective and efficientimplementation and monitoring of the program.There will be monthly check-ups to be conducted to monitor the healthstatus of the children until the completion of the treatment on February 2009. Thefirst monthly check-up was conducted last June 30, 2008.  b.Capacity Development The parent leaders who were organized to monitor the project wasoriented on Pulmonary Tuberculosis and the treatment process by Dr. Locson,DOTS consultant/physician. The sessions among parents about PTB patients areon-going through the project and with the help of the district health center. Thesessions aim to increase the awareness of the parents about the disease whichis 5 th among the 10 leading causes of death.In addition, the health coordinator conducts regular monthly meeting withthe treatment partners not only to monitor the project’s implementation but also toassist them in their difficulties and problems encountered in the communityduring the treatment process. 4.Impact on Direct and Indirect Beneficiaries There are 239 children who benefited from the medical check-up. Fromthe 239, there were 228 CCF sponsored children and 11 siblings were assisted.From the 228 CCF sponsored children, 83 are now undergoing medication.(Please see attached list of Gift of Love beneficiaries.) 5.Implementation Strategy Reviewa.Participatory/Consultative Processes The project bought the PTB medicines in bulk and stored in the office. Thehealth coordinator is the one in charge of monitoring the provision of medicinesto the treatment partners every week. Each treatment partner was provided withthe list of children assigned to them. The treatment partners are responsible for administering the medicines to the children daily. Medicines administered arerecorded daily and it should be countersigned by the parents. Daily records of medicines administered will be presented to the health coordinator prior to theprovision of succeeding medicines.The community mobilizer together with the treatment partners has aregular meeting with the parents of children undergoing the PTB treatment to getfeedback and observation about the health progress of their children.The children who are undergoing the PTB treatment were reported to thedistrict health centers for possible access of the health services which could helpin their recovery.
