What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
We target poverty-stricken resettlement areas in the province of Pampanga, Philippines and provide affordable healthcare to the most needy. In a society where private, for profit facilities are common, we offer an alternative where no one is denied their most basic healthcare needs.
How will this project solve this problem?
We operate a clinic that will solve as well as educate health problems related to poverty: parasitism, avitaminosis, wound infections, anemia, diarrhea, skin disease, poor hygiene, dental care. We offer programs for the disabled (prosthetics), midwife education, mother child charity clinics, eye, cleft palate, and harelip surgeries.We also have a birthing clinic and manage satellite birthing clinics.
Potential Long Term Impact
The clinic will be the single source of affordable healthcare to the residents of the province of Pampanga who have no access to healthcare.
