Who we are

Halad to Health Foundation Philippines not-for-profit charity organisation closing critical gaps in global health inequality starting with the disadvantaged youth in Mindanao (southern islands of the Philippine). Our free and accessible health education and services are built to benefit especially those who cannot afford to pay.

Each year, we organise missions with our International Volunteers that aid our in-country programs on Youth Mental Health and Sexual Health ran by our Filipino Youth Ambassadors.

“Our goal is to create safe spaces for all the youth in Mindanao, and we are starting here in the province of Bukidnon. These spaces are for those who don’t have the means and opportunity to access life-changing and life-saving support.” – Wilh Jacobin, Co-Founder & Country Director for the Philippines

Impact Story

What we do

We support young peoples’ mental health and sexual health by establishing Safe Spaces, a physical home of Halad to Health services provided in schools and communities.

A pioneering Mental Health Program in Mindanao that breaks down stigma, normalises safe conversations and promotes seeking support—crafted by the youth for the youth.

A re-casted approach to Youth Sexual Health that highlights the integral role of both boys and girls in dismantling discriminating gender norms on teenage pregnancy.

I’ve always felt the need to give back to my community — I just didn’t know how. Getting to interact and share ideas with Australian Volunteers during the school fair in 2020 was the one of the many chances I took to make impacts.

Today, being one of the Halad Ambassadors made me feel more seen, more grounded, and more empowered than I have ever been.
