Dear Friends of the Medical Mission,
For those who are just getting into the circle, The Medical Mission is in Cebu Island. This is one of the islands of Visayas in the middle part of the Philippines. This is the second largest city with lots of history. This will be on February 7-14. 2016. Be ready to spend your Valentine’s day in the mission.
JiJi Gullas one of our hosts in Cebu is visiting us in Jacksonville and has seen the equipments and supplies to be donated to the medical mission area. This may take 3-4 (40 ft) container vans to ship them. We have a continuing discussion with him and the rest of the team what are our needs. I am requesting that for our accomodations we need air-conditioned rooms and a hot shower. We are working with the Governor’s Office and the Rotary Club
Most of the communications and discussions will be done through the email. And when the team is being formed we will meet each other for those who can. We have volunteers from California and New York.
We would like to thank the donations of Drs. Ben & Virgie Samera ($1000), Drs Joe & Minnie Hernandez ($1000)
and the pledges of Visayas Mindanao Association ($1000), Read Philippines (Doreen Flippin) $1000, Art Gandionco $500
Our goal is to raise $60,000. Not including the above donations and pledges we have $28,000 in the bank, $1,700 in paypal,
$500 in credit card account. So we pass the 50% mark and every month we will have a fund raising activity.
May 30 Sat, Dr. Brent Canlas is conducting Pain Management Seminar for Primary Physicians and all proceeds will go to the mission. July 25 the Luau Night, Aug 22 – Formal Ballroom Dancing, Sept- Bowling, October- Filipino Pride Day.
Save the dates.
