Medical and Dental Mission project of the Manila High School Alumni Association (MHSAA) Inc.

Dear MHS alumni,

We would like to request for your support to the first project of the MHSAA this year – a
Medical and Dental Mission. This project aims to respond to the health and wellness needs of students and teachers of Manila High School (MHS). Health is a human right that should be made available to people. In reality, however, many Filipinos cannot afford the cost of medical treatments and medicines so they only consult doctors or visit hospital facilities only in serious illnesses and emergency cases. We are aware that majority of around 3,000 students of MHS come from very poor families. We also know that public school teachers, including the MHS teachers, do not earn enough to afford regular wellness medical consultations. This project will give both MHS students and teachers an opportunity to avail free medical and dental services.

Below are indicative details of “Pagpapalaganap ng Karapatan sa Kalusugan (PKK):
An MHSAA Medical and Dental Mission 2013”. The MHSAA board members are closely coordinating this project with MHS Principal, Ms. Laura Macalinao.
