Manna Foundation is a not-for-profit volunteer organization with the primary goal of providing aid to the most disadvantaged members of the community.

Since its founding, Manna Foundation continues to provide:

  • Job skills training

  • Healthcare assistance programs

  • Livelihood programs

  • Tuition assistance programs

  • Free school supplies

  • Free meals

Over the years, the foundation has assisted disadvantaged groups such as low-income families, individuals with chronic ailments, the disabled, the homeless, and the unemployed. Manna Foundation is 100% run by volunteers from the United States, Philippines, Dubai, Canada, Singapore, New Zealand, and Australia.

In December 2023, the organization put together 100 meals and were given to homeless individuals on Christmas day. The group brought presents and pastries to 18 children from low-income families who spent the holidays in an intensive cure unit. As we continue to march on in 2024, Manna Foundation launched a fundraising campaign to help pay for the healthcare cost of a child who is undergoing chemo therapy.

Thali's success story

Thali is the youngest of three sisters. Her family shares that she never runs out of energy and has a great passion for learning. Her classmates enjoy playtime with her because of her cheerfulness. However, it took some time and a lot of work for Thali to become the wonderful young girl that she is today.

 

Thali was born with clubfoot, an abnormality in which the foot points downward and inward. In Thali’s case, she had it on both feet. If left untreated, a person will not be able to put their feet flat on the ground and ultimately not be able to stand up and walk.

Thali has been in therapy for her medical condition since birth.

Thali is a recipient of one of Manna Foundation’s healthcare programs. Manna Foundation is honored to share that after years of treatment and therapy, Thali is now able to walk, jump, run, play, and create happy and meaningful memories with her family and friends.

These photos were from Thali's kindergarten graduation, where she proudly walked up to the stage to receive her outstanding student award.

We wish you all the best and may you always be healthy so that you can pursue your dreams!

Thank you to all our donors and volunteers. With your help, we can continue to change lives for the better.

In 2013, after a harrowing automobile accident that caused a severe concussion, Francis developed Epilepsy. For a lot of people, Epilepsy is a lifelong medical condition, and you would have to rely on medication to stay healthy. Within a matter of weeks, it became apparent how difficult and exhausting it is to live a life with so many restrictions because of Epilepsy. Fatigue and stress overpower the body and the mind to the point that all one can do is stay in bed for hours to recuperate. Something as simple as going to the grocery store to purchase food at times becomes close to unattainable. On top of that, you also have to deal with the side effects of anti-seizure medication.

Long-term medical conditions such as Epilepsy, Diabetes, Cancer, Asthma, and heart disease are disabilities. They are in some way similar to loss of sight, loss of hearing, or paraplegia. Any extent of help counts when you have a disability.

 

After a year of living with Epilepsy, in 2014, Francis established Manna Foundation. The goal of the foundation is simple – to give help to those who need it the most.

“May you receive help especially when you need it the most;

and may you give help to those who need it the most.”
