NATIONAL ALLIANCE FOR FILIPINO CONCERNS
NAFCON is a national alliance of Filipino organizations, institutions, and individuals that responds to the concerns of Filipinos in the US and in the Philippines by creating an action-oriented platform that brings people together through culture & heritage, education, health & wellness, and advocacy.
Access to social services such as healthcare has been lacking in the Philippines. Poverty, exacerbated by government neglect and regular typhoons, has caused the deterioration of the health of community members. Lack of education on health and well-being, as well as lack of access to doctors and health professionals, aggravate the conditions of the people. Examples of conditions needing health education include diabetes, hypertension, respiratory infections, skin diseases, and trauma and stress management. It is in this light that the National Alliance for Filipino Concerns (NAFCON) invite concerned members of the community in the US to a medical mission in the Philippines annually.$500.00 donated of $5,000.00 goal
