Due to their vulnerability to health issues, children with disabilities were strictly ‘kept’ during the 2-year lockdown due to the pandemic. At walang nakaalala sa kanila kung kumusta na sila during that time.
Sa aming pagkakaalam ay halos hindi rin sila naabutan ng ayudang pambili ng gamot o vitamins. Marami sa kanila ay hindi rin nabigyan ng required therapy. Kaya naman this time na nakalalabas na ang lahat at puwede nang magkita nang face-to-face, unang naalala ng Philippine Movie Press Club (PMPC) ang mga batang ito. Sinundan din ito ng suporta ng SM Foundation, Inc. (SMFI).
Ang mga batang differently-abled ng St. Francis Integrated Arts School Inc. ay naging young beneficiaries ng SMFI-PMPC Medical & Dental Mission 2. Likewise, their teachers, parents or caregivers na nakakuha rin ng free consultation and medicines.
Naging matagumpay ang medical mission sa tulong nina Ms. Connie Angeles who heads the Health and Medical Programs of the SMFI with Assistant Project Manager Dalfhen Samson, and Medical Team head Dr. Bless Bertos.
Ang mga naging volunteers sa misyong ito ay mula sa Philippine Red Cross, doctors from Manila Medical Society, DWIZ (for the coverage and interview, MX3 – DMIRIE Foundation, Inc., and Volunteer Dentist Dr. Joel Galapon were also on hand to attend to the kids.
Kami ay nagpapasalamat kay ma’am Becky for trusting PMPC and giving a school break for the event. Thank you, teachers for bringing the kids to the venue.
What a joy to see our little ones once again. Keep healthy kids, SM Foundation loves you!
Thank you, MX3 for the gifts and Jollibee treat for them!l
