Metro Pacific Investments Foundation Inc. (MPIF), the corporate social responsibility arm of infrastructure conglomerate Metro Pacific Investments Corporation (MPIC), recently mobilized Health It Up! (HIU), a two-day medical mission for coastal community residents of nine municipalities in Siargao.
Health it Up is a partnership of MPIF and Makati Medical Center Foundation (MMCF) to address the health concerns of fisherfolks and coastal communities in Shore it Up’s partner sites that help protect and restore the ocean.
MPIF flew in doctors, nurses, and medical practitioners to provide quality healthcare services such as surgery, optical, dental, pediatrics, general medicine, OB-GYN, E.N.T., and orthopedics to almost 2,000 Siargaonons from the municipalities of General Luna, Del Carmen, Burgos, Dapa, San Benito, Pilar, San Isidro, Socorro, and Santa Monica.
“MPIF’s commitment to our partner sites nationwide goes beyond environmental and socioeconomic impact and now promises to bolster the health and wellbeing of its people as part of a healthy ecosystem in the years to come,” said MPIF President Melody del Rosario (shown in photo turning over Well-on-the-Go kit and portable water filters to Del Carmen Mayor Alfredo M. Coro II).
