The Philippine Atheists and Agnostics Society, Inc. (PATAS, Inc.) will be having its second free medical clinic at Barangay Balite, Rodriguez, Rizal on the 22nd of March, 2014. The barangay is home to approximately 10,000-15,000 residents: 6,000 voting residents and approximately 4,000 children and 3,000 women. These figures are just approximation of the Barangay Captain Ronnil Hernandez. There is a rural health unit near the barangay. However, according to Barangay Captain Ronnil Hernandez, there is always a shortage of stocks of medications and that they're mostly in need of cough and cold medications, multivitamins, and antibiotics for adults.
For the month of March, we will also be doing free ECG for our patients in the barangay, courtesy of Metro Pharma Philippines, Inc. (MPPI).
The activity will start at around 9 a.m. until 4 p.m.
I’m posting this also to encourage volunteers to help out in this medical clinic, as part of our humanism projects of the organization. If you are interested to volunteer, please send a message to Tess Termulo, PATAS-President. Please also let me know if you are someone who has training in healthcare.
I would also like to ask for help, in terms of donations, be it in kind or monetary, to support our funds for the medications in this project. With a large population of the barangay, for sure, all medications given will be greatly appreciated. If enough funding will be gained, then we can do this on a more regular basis, which is better, since the patients in the baranggay will be given follow-up care.
Thank you very much and I hope everyone interested will be able to participate.
