Bulakeños benefited at SM City Marilao’ s Medical and Dental Mission

SM Foundation recently conducted its “Gamot Para sa Kapwa-Medical and Dental Mission Mall Caravan” at SM City Marilao benefiting over 1076 indigent patients from Bulacan.

 

Beneficiaries availed the free medical and dental check-up and tooth extraction.  Through the SM Foundation Mobile Clinic, diagnostic and laboratory services were also provided; 74 underwent Electro Cardiograph (ECG) tests, 94 got free X-Ray exams, 32 had their urinalysis, while 93 had their eye checked. Thousands of medicines were also distributed, as per doctors’ referral, along with vitamins and other health supplements.

 

This year’s project partners included San Lazaro Hospital, Order of Malta, Capitol Medical Center, Bulacan Medical Society, Bulacan Medical Center, Philippine Dental Association- Bulacan Chapter, Kapisanan ng Dentista ng Bulacan (KADEBU), Marilao Municipal Health Office, Marilao Municipal Social Welfare and Development Office and Philippine National Red Cross-Bulacan Chapter. Bureau of Fire Protection and Philippine National Police of Bulacan also supported the event.

St. Michael Family Hospital and Samahan ng mga Kababaihan ng Ibayo provided volunteers to help conduct the medical mission while mall eye shop, Ideal Vision, gave free eye check-ups and huge discount stubs for all the patients.

 

Ms. Connie Angeles, SM Foundation’s Executive Director, welcomed the patients during her visit. She also acknowledged all volunteers that include doctors, dentists, nurses and NGOs for joining the noble activity for the needy.

SM Foundation also gave literacy programs to educate individuals on the prevention of certain diseases and illnesses through a film showing. Among the health advocacies that was shown during the mission was the “Anti- Rabies campaign”.  Patients were provided with wealth of information on rabies and were encouraged to have their dogs and cats vaccinated as the disease is irreversible and 100% fatal.

This medical/dental mission is part of the commitment of SM in reaching out to the marginalized sectors of the society.
