MCI's Eighth Eye Care Outreach
April 6, 2019
Dr. Minda Rodriguez, an ophthalmologist, Dr. Magdalena Sta.Ana, MCI President Dr. Aland Mizell, and Attorney Susan Cariaga donated eye care service to Buhangin District, Brangay Mandug, Davao City, on April 6, 2019 along with a team of MCISA college students organized through Minority Care International Student Association. MCI distributed more than 350 new eyeglasses. MCI extends its thanks to Dr. Rodriguez, Attorney Cariaga, Dr. Magdalena Sta.Ana, and MCI scholars for their amazing work. MCI’s goal for this ongoing project is to provide eyeglasses to improve vision and to give free eye check-ups to economically struggling communities. Last year MCI distributed more than 400 eyeglasses and gave eye check-ups for more than 1500 people, all of whom were adults. MCI alumni who are registered nurses gave free blood pressure screening for the community. Many of the people who received the free eye check-ups and eyeglasses are very happy because they can now see clearly as they read. The eye care clinic is an outreach project for students to practice compassionate servanthood, one that draws a variety of disadvantaged people to receive eye exams and free eyeglasses. This was a meaningful project for our students who enjoyed serving to fulfill this community need. Thank you, MCI.
