In February of 2015, Medical Missions Foundation partnered with World Outreach Foundation and several Philippines’ based organizations to complete a mission at Ormoc District Hospital in Leyte.
A 40 foot container of equipment, supplies and instruments was delivered prior to the start of the mission. The group worked long hours to serve 2037 patients. There were 56 major and 72 minor surgeries completed. In the clinic, the practitioners saw 1191 patients and the dental personnel completed 545 extractions and fillings. The eye team dispensed 205 pairs of reading glasses as well. One of the largest efforts was screening for diabetes through blood glucose. The team screened approximately 500 patients.
The mission to the Philippines is one of Medical Missions Foundation’s flagship missions. It has been occurring on an annual basis since the establishment of Medical Missions Foundation.
