CITY OF MALOLOS – A total of 497 Bulakenyos received quality medical and alternative healthcare services during the Surgical, Medical and Integrative Medicine Mission sponsored by GC Rivera Foundation from February 19 to 21, 2024 at the Rogaciano M. Mercado Memorial Hospital (RMMMH) in Santa Maria, Bulacan.
Through the foundation’s sponsorship and with the help of its top benefactor, Ms. Ashley Kohler, an innovative leader overseeing purpose-driven and community-focused initiatives, the said mission was able to provide health services to 244 patients for Medicine, 103 patients for Pediatrics, 100 patients for Integrative Medicine, 32 for Major Surgery and 18 for Minor Surgery.
Prior the scheduled medical mission, 11 boxes of OR/medical supplies had already been shipped to RMMMH.
Foundation’s President Jere Rivera-Dugenio, a doctor of Natural Medicine, said that aside from performing major and minor operations, their team of medical doctors also saw and checked patients and provided prescriptions for all medications needed by the beneficiaries.
“We also set up our own pharmacy where all patients seen by doctors can pick up their medications at no charge at all,” Rivera-Dugenio explained.
Furthermore, his team of doctors, nutritionists and therapists offered treatment, therapy and nutritional advise to children with autism and special needs.
The foundation also pledged 20 hospital beds for RMMMH.
RMMH Chief Dr. David Rawland M. Domingo said that the patients who availed of the free medical and alternative healthcare services were pre-identified but, they also accepted walk-in patients during the conduct of the mission.
Bulacan Gov. Daniel R. Fernando and Vice Gov. Alexis C. Castro expressed their appreciation and gratitude to GC Rivera Foundation for conducting their mission in Bulacan that brought additional provision of much needed healthcare to less fortunate Bulakenyos.
The GC Rivera Foundation is exclusively organized for charitable, educational and scientific purposes. 
The primary intention is to provide medical and alternative medicine healthcare to underprivileged individuals and children with special needs (autism spectrum disorder, Down’s Syndrome, MS, etc.) through paradigm-shifting, integrative, medical, surgical missions within and outside the United States of America.
