Raised Pinay (Raised Filipino Woman) is a benefit show on March 31 at the Philippine Consulate of New York and April 2 at NYU’s Palladium Hall. This original activist theater piece featuring an all-pinay cast who will share their own stories of being raised as a Filipina.
This October Roots of Health began a partnership with the Philippine Navy to provide services to remote island communities. For the first mission we traveled to Balabac, an island off the southern tip of Palawan. The mission was physically grueling but well worth it as we have changed the lives of many women there.
