About Plus1 Palawano

Plus 1 Palawano seeks to improve the lives of the Palawano people by increasing access to healthcare, especially among the high risk group of newborns to five year olds. Our local team has begun traveling into the highlands to diagnose and treat malaria as well as address basic health care needs. Our immediate goals are:

  • Reduce child mortality (upwards to 50%)
  • Improve maternal health
  • Address the causes of extreme poverty and hunger

We are working with local NGOs in Palawan such as Philippines Shell Foundation and The World Health Organization. We are also pursuing organizations within the US to get the resources and experience needed to accomplish the above goals. Future projects include:

  • Communicable disease prevention
  • Water and sanitation projects
  • Income generation and self sustainability
  • Agriculture development
