SM leads first medical mission in areas hit by Taal eruption

Displaced families were given immediate medical assistance through the first medical mission for communities affected by the recent Taal volcano eruption as SM holds its 3-day Oplan Tulong Express medical mission in Batangas and Lipa starting on January 17 to 19.

Oplan Tulong Express mobile clinic trucks line up early in the morning as SM holds medical mission to provide displaced families with immediate medical assistance for communities affected by the Taal volcano eruption.
“We understand the health risk brought by the recent eruption especially in areas within the danger zone,” said SM Supermalls COO Steven Tan. “With this, we have mobilized this medical mission and we will continue to bring relief and medical assistance in places where we are much needed.”
