TK Spearheads 2nd Medical Mission
Last March 27, Sr. Lieou Sy was filled with 180 residents of Santissima Trinidad, the adopted community of St. Scholastica’s College-Manila, as they availed of free medical check-up and medication.
Sponsored by Tanggapan ng Kalinga (TK), the said event was supported not only by the High School Faculty Association (HSFA), but also Scholasticans who are now successful medical practitioners. There were 12 doctors, 5 nurses and 1 pharmacist in attendance. Moreover, the members of the TK Core Group were also actively participating in the medical mission.
This was made possible also by the Department of Health (DOH), Prime Care, a pharmaceutical company; Ms. Marian Claus, an alumna; and Helal Family, who donated most of the distributed medicines. Donations were also received from the HSPA, alumni, YES Club and Entrepreneurship class of the High School Unit.
Given the time and resources, this medical mission is just a start of more outreach programs to come.
