We thank MakatiMed for reaching out to Yolanda survivors. It has teamed up with the Tacloban Doctors Medical Center and the Philippine National Red Cross to reach out to Yolanda survivors, setting up an ER on-ground and sending six composite medical teams, servicing close to 1,000 patients in Tacloban and outlying communities. MMC Foundation also released and distributed 1,000 emergency family health kits through PNRC. The hospital says it started relief operations early on and that it has been assisting the National Resource Operations Center (NROC) in developing a system to increase the production of relief goods and ensure immediate dispatch to designated ports, airports, and via land.

Many survivors of super typhoon Yolanda are in need of immediate medical care but they have nowhere to go. Almost all hospitals and health centers in the provinces hit by the super typhoon are no longer functional, some of them were even flattened. Local medical and health professionals and medicines are even more scarce than food and water.

The Department of Health has set up its own medical tents, but their resources and people are too scarce and scattered; they can barely keep up with this massive scale of devastation Yolanda left on our people.

We are calling on The Makati Medical Center to set up one mobile hospital to any of the super typhoon-hit provinces. And we ask that these hospitals keep these facilities ready for deployment every time disasters strike the country. This is the perfect time The Makati Medical Center, being one of the top 5 hospitals in the Philippines, to GIVE BACK to society in terms of resources and expertise.

For every day that survivors are not given medical attention, they are becoming more and more vulnerable and at risk of death. And this human catastrophe may become bigger than what we're seeing in the news.

A mobile hospital in each province can help thousands of survivors who are in need of emergency care or surgery. Instead of patients being airlifted to Manila, why not just bring the hospitals to them? Hundreds of lives may be saved and it could help preempt an outbreak of diseases and infections.

      because I believe that doctors are God-sent warriors on earth so they can use them as his instruments to show how he will provide the healing of their souls while the doctors will heal their ailing bodies...
