Foundation calls for more partners for eye center-A A +A
Saturday, January 8, 2011
BACOLOR — The Kapampangan Development Foundation (KDF) said Saturday that it will welcome more service partners for the full operation of its Eye Center here to better serve more indigents in Pampanga.
KDF trustee Sylvia Ordonez told Sun.Star Pampanga that they welcome doctors, volunteers, government agencies and local government units who would like to devout their time and part of their logistics to cater to more indigents with eye problems at the Jose A. Datu Medical Center (JADMC).
KDF is now strengthening its Eye Center services.
The Eye Center is jointly operated by the World Medical Relief Inc. and the JADMC.
The KDF started Saturday the first medical mission for indigents with ptygerium problems.
“We are welcoming more volunteers and people and agencies who would like to devout their time to help in the regular missions and free clinic sessions that we are about to host in the coming weeks,” Ordonez said.
Ordonez added KDF partners have now swelled to 50 partner organizations.
But currently, the group is still in need of more service partners to man the growing KDF services programs that include prosthesis for indigent amputees, maternal and child clinic services, and regular facial reconstructive and palate surgeries.
The organization has also branched into giving wheel chairs and offering medical and health services missions to Kapampangans.
This year, KDF is set to embark on more socio-civic programs that would include a more diverse health program and livelihood projects.
“Interested parties may visit us at the Social Action Center of Pampanga and can contact any of our partner organizations,” Ordonez said. (Ian Ocampo Flora)
