Low-income families in Cagayan received Medical Care from SM Foundation, Inc.

Medical missions have become an increasingly vital source of support for low-income communities that are hampered by challenges in accessing quality healthcare. These missions not only provide medical care, but they also play a vital role in transforming the lives of individuals and communities. The SM Foundation, Inc. (SMFI) recognizes the importance of these missions, and it has made it its mission to travel from Luzon to Mindanao to provide free medical care and services to thousands of patients from various hard-pressed communities.

Through the SMFI medical missions, people like Roland Bariuan and Angeline Cacanindin have received free medical care and services that would otherwise be unattainable due to financial constraints. Roland, a tricycle driver in Tuguegarao City, was able to receive free consultation, blood tests, x-rays, and medicines through the SMFI medical mission. These services would have been costly if he had sought them elsewhere, and he would not have been able to afford them. With the assistance extended to him, he had his scheduled checkup without worrying about finances and was even able to put aside money originally allotted for medicine and laboratory tests. As a tricycle driver, he cannot avoid getting sick due to the pollution, and the free checkup and medication from the SMFI medical mission were a significant help.

Angeline, a house helper from Cagayan Valley, brought her youngest daughter to the SMFI medical mission in SM City Cauayan to have her tooth extracted. Her daughter had been suffering from a toothache, which was already interfering with her nutrition and attendance in school. Through the SMFI medical mission, she received free paracetamol, antibiotics, vitamins appropriate for her child's age, and dental hygiene tips from volunteer dentists. The free medical care and services provided by the SMFI medical mission were a lifeline for Angeline and her daughter.

The ongoing medical missions of SMFI provide immediate relief to those in need and a chance for economically disadvantaged individuals like Roland and Angeline to access medical care and resources that are often unavailable or unattainable. These missions help transform the lives of individuals and communities and play a vital role in ensuring that quality healthcare is attainable for all.
