Food Empire Sponsored the Fourth Medical Mission to Manila between 3rd to 13th June 2015

News/Events on 13 Jun , 2015

The Food Empire Manila Medical Mission was first started in 2012 by two National University of Singapore medical students with the aim of providing medical aid in Philippines. This year, the visit to Manila equipped the communities with the relevant knowledge and skills required for the prevention of illness and management of
general well-being of their health and to monitor their compliance and commitment; improved the overall health and wellness of communities via the prevention of the onset of avoidable illnesses; and to provide nutrition for the people to the greatest extent possible.
The new team, formed in April this year, comprising 6 Year One medical students, went to Manila from the 3rd to 13th June 2015. As with previous trips, they sought to improve the health of various communities in Philippines through health screenings and health education programs. In addition, they implemented feeding programmes
and community outreaches.  The group of medical students conducted free health clinics, carried out basic health education and provided other non-medical aid to Manila’s underprivileged communities. The communities that they visited and served included the squatter settlement of North Cemetery and Matutum, the Boys Town Complex, the Mangyan and AETAS tribe, and the Correctional Institute for Women.
We are honoured to have sponsored the Medical Mission for the fourth year running. Corporate social responsibility is close to the hearts of the people here at Food Empire and we are pleased to continue on the journey we started in 2012 to extend our help to those who need it. The knowledge that the team accumulated and gained from past trips has enabled the Medical Mission to serve the communities they visited better. The Manila Medical Mission to Manila was first initiated in 2012 with the aim to helping the less fortunate by providing medical relief. We hope that Food Empire and the Manila Medical Mission will continue to work towards the betterment of the living conditions of people staying in rural Philippines.
