SSC-GS H.O.P.E. Clinic Participated in Health and Wellness Caravan
St. Scholastica’s College – Graduate School’s Haven for Optimum Psycho-Spiritual Empowerment (SSC-GS H.O.P.E.) Clinic, on its second year, joins with the National Anti-Poverty Commission in promoting the commission’s thrust on eradicating poverty in a health and wellness caravan that commemorates the National Week on Overcoming Extreme Poverty held last October 14, 2017 at the Quezon City Circle.
The clinic contingent was headed by Dr. Ma. Lourdes Medina, together with the SSC-GS HOPE Clinic and University of Sto. Tomas EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing) volunteers.
The clinic offered psychosocial counseling services for the participating members of the marginalized groups and from the non-governmental organizations. The service is intended to resolve and redirect everyday life difficulties these groups of people encounter daily and instill hope and empowerment to take charge of their lives.
The SSC-GS HOPE Clinic is committed to participate in the efforts of the public sector in addressing poverty.
