Last August 8, 2015, we held a medical mission in Fr. Angelo Falardi Clinic for the people of Payatas, this was our way to celebrate the 11th founding anniversary of our clinic and to remember the 9th death anniversary of our dear benefactor Mr. Frank Hickey of Hickey Family Foundation.
The medical mission was a successful event as we were assisted by 3 doctors for general consultation and 4 dentists from San Juan Dental Association for dental extraction. Aside from the general consultation and dental extraction services, patients had availed also free chest x-ray, laboratory tests (CBC, urinalysis, FBS) and even breakfast for all. These services benefited over 300 patients from Payatas residents and nearby areas.
Once a year PAOFI and Falardi Clinic remember in a special way the late Mr. Frank Hickey, who worked for the healing of patients with tuberculosis.
Hickey Family Foundation and PAOFI have partnered for many years now to fight tuberculosis in Payatas, and hundred of patients are healed every year at Fr. Angelo Falardi Clinic.
We also thank Fr. Diego Lorenzi for all his support and commitment.
