Fighting Disease

We educate and equip communities to stop the spread of life-threatening diseases like polio, HIV/AIDS, and malaria. We improve and expand access to low-cost and free health care in developing areas.

These are some of our programs and projects.

Retinoblastoma Life-Saving
Treatment for Indigent Pediatric Cancer Patients

The second arm of our Alay-Buhay Project involves patients afflicted with Retinoblastoma. Retinoblastoma is a malignant condition in the eye that usually affects patients from 2 to 10 years old. Unlike any other childhood malignancies, Retinoblastoma, once diagnosed and treated correctly and early, has a good prognosis in terms of survival. In this program, we cover the complete chemotherapy and radiotherapy treatment of the patients.

Alay sa Kalusugan Feeding and Vaccination Program

Our Alay Kalusugan Program works with Kabisig sa Kalahi Foundation to provide meals for unfortunate children for 120 days of the school year to help them become effective at school work / student life. The foundation works with DTI's Council for National Competitiveness as well as Mead Johnson (for milk, Lactum) and Unilever.

Through this program, we provide meals in school and we work with the mothers and help them prepare nutritious meals at home.

Mobile Mulat-Mata Eye Refraction Mission

Mulat-Mata Eye Refraction is one of our annual projects. In partnership with Transitions, this project aims to improve the sight of Filipinos nationwide through eye refraction activities for children and senior citizens. This year, the project was held at Amadeo, Cavite and ended with a Children’s party to share the joy of the holiday season.

 

Mulat-Mata Cataract Surgery Program

The Mulat-Mata Project has been our flagship project in the past years. It aims to provide free cataract surgeries to indigent Filipinos -- from farmers, informal settlers, and war veteran.

This initiative has evolved through the years. RCMD constructed an outpatient clinic in Quezon City in 2011 that provides free cataract surgeries for indigent patients every other month.

This is a project in our pipeline.
