“MFI Celebrates 1st Anniversary at Don Bosco Pugad”

Born in the month of love, MediCard Foundation happily celebrated its first birthday last February 1, 2013 through a simple yet meaningful thanksgiving outreach at Don Bosco Pugad located within the compound of St. John Bosco Parish in Makati City.

Pugad is a temporary shelter for street children and migrant youth from different parts of the country that provides opportunities for formal and non-formal schooling.  Most of its current scholars are elementary and high school dropouts from Isabela, Pangasinan, Laguna, Cavite, Batangas, Mindoro, Palawan, Iloilo, Cebu, Bohol, Negros Oriental, Davao, Cagayan de Oro and Cotabato.

With MFI’s anniversary project dubbed as “Pasasalamat sa Unang Anibersaryo”, the gift-giving activity benefitted some 65 migrant youth who each received a bag of towel and toiletries for their daily use.  “These supplies are what they mostly needed at present,” according to Pugad rector Father Dave Buenaventura and house parent Mr. Ruben Jamisola.

MFI officers and members led by Mr. Luis Montoya joined the migrant youth in partaking the sumptuous lunch prepared and cooked by the beneficiaries themselves.  A showcase of singing talents both from MediCard  and Pugad groups made the occasion more memorable.
MediCard Foundation, Inc. was officially incorporated under the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) on February 1, 2012 with endorsements from the Department of Health (DOH) and the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD).
