What we do

France-Philippines United Action Foundation advocates to build stronger communities in the Philippines.
We select underprivileged families who live in extreme precarious conditions that may be caused or increased by natural disasters, as our beneficiaries. We believe it is our duty to provide permanent and decent housing for their new beginning.
We wish to complement their needs with the implementation of programs in health, children’s welfare and our support in livelihood activities; for them to become sustainable and resilient against natural events.
