At least 584 Bulakenyos benefited from the recent SM Foundation medical and dental mission held at SM City Marilao. Bringing together doctors and volunteers in one venue, the project provided health services to indigent patients in the community.

Making it accessible to the public, the SM Foundation’s medical and dental mission in SM City Marilao offered various services, such as medical and dental checkups and procedures, blood pressure checkups, and basic laboratory examinations that include uric acid, cholesterol, hemoglobin, and blood sugar testing and monitoring.

Free diagnostic and other laboratory services such as electrocardiograms (ECG) and x-ray tests were likewise availed of by the patients through the SM Foundation Mobile Clinic.

Patients from Marilao and other neighboring towns were also provided with free medicines during the medical and dental mission.

This year, SM Foundation’s project and volunteer partners include the Philippine National Red Cross-Bulacan Chapter and the Marilao Municipal Health Office. Private medical companies like DMI Medical Supply Company Inc. and Willore Pharmaceutical also stepped forward to help rural folks through the provision of health supplements and services. 

SM Foundation’s Gamot Para Sa Kapwa Medical and Dental Mission is the socio-civic arm of the SM Group of Companies and aims to provide ancillary services to communities that have limited access to medical services. It also aims to provide immediate dental benefits to economically disadvantaged patients within the malls’ vicinities.
