The season of giving and sharing has come! And to celebrate the birth of our savior Jesus Christ, Jose R. Reyes Memorial Medical Center in cooperation with Skin Research Foundation Philippines, Inc. held their annual thanksgiving event, the PAMASKONG HANDOG.

With the shared effort of SRF and JRRMMC Department of Dermatology consultants, alumni, residents, staff and their sponsors, Pamaskong Handog was successfully held today. They were able to serve a total of 239 patients who received free consultations, medications, loot bags and snacks.

It has been another year full of unforgettable experiences and learnings for JRRMMC Department of Dermatology. And as a way to give thanks to the patients who entrust their dermatologic concerns to JRRMMC, the department ensured to give back to their patients who are the very reason why they strive to be better and better as the years go by.

March 2019: Medical Mission

The forty days of Lent: Reflection, Reconciliation, and Renewal.

The Skin Research Foundation of the Philippines, Inc. in cooperation with the Jose R. Reyes Memorial Medical Center Department of Dermatology commemorated the Lenten Season by visiting the Manila Boys Town Complex in Marikina last March 23, 2019 via the gift of charity and giving.

With the leadership of our beloved Chairman, Dr. Ma. Flordeliz Abad-Casintahan, we saw and treated patients with various skin diseases. We also performed various dermatologic surgical procedures such as electrocautery of common warts and extraction of molluscum contagiousum.


We are grateful to have this opportunity to reflect on our spiritual life, reconcile with the Lord via the act of charity and camaraderie, and renew our souls in preparation for reunion with our Father in eternal life. For it is said that "all are from dust, and to dust we shall all return", but our souls, if pure and good, will enjoy the rewards of the Kingdom of God.

November 2019: Medical Mission (Angeles, Pampanga)

Whatever you do to the least of my brothers, so you do unto Me” (Matthew 25: 31-46). 

The Jose R. Reyes Memorial Medical Center Department of Dermatology, in cooperation with the Skin Research Foundation of the Philippines (SRF) and the Philippine Dermatological Society (PDS), conducted its medical mission with the Aeta community of Sitio Target Brgy. Sapangbato, Angeles, Pampanga on November 16, 2019. 

Dr. Ma. Flordeliz Abad-Casintahan, our beloved chairperson and president of the Skin Research Foundation, opened the event by welcoming everyone and expressing our heartfelt thanks to the community for the opportunity to serve them. This was followed by a skin care lecture by Dr. Melissa Joy Ong (first year resident) and Dr. Joseph Tayag (preresident) to which the patients learned ways to prevent some of their common skin problems. 

A total of 200 Aeta children and adults received free consultations, procedures like cautery, medicines, hygiene kits, and snacks. 

Before the medical mission ended, a touching intermission number was prepared by the high school students of Sitio Target school not only to showcase their talents but also to express their genuine happiness and appreciation to their guests. 

The department is very grateful and is always looking forward to opportunities such as this to reach out and bring our service closer to our countrymen especially to the indigenous community. It warms and fills our hearts to share our blessings, spread hope, and kindness inspiring us to be better and compassionate physicians. Everyone went home filled with joy, being able to love, serve and care our Aeta kababayans. 

Special thanks to the school principal Mr. Lucky Paul, school teachers Teacher Jenny and Teacher Geraldine, school helpers and cook, barangay captain, barangay secretary, and the rest of the Barangay Sitio's police task force for your hospitality and for helping us organize and deliver a successful medical mission.

Love. Serve. Care. 2022

“It's not how much we give but how much love we put into giving.”
― Mother Theresa
The Skin Research Foundation of the Philippines Inc., together with Jose R. Reyes Memorial Medical Center Department of Dermatology held a Love.Serve.Care outreach program last March 17, 2022 for children bravely battling cancer at the National Children’s Hospital and at Jose R. Reyes Memorial Medical Center.
Personalized Love.Serve.Care. bags were distributed containing essential items such as food, masks, hygiene products, as well as educational materials.
Each child also received a teddy bear which brought wide smiles and twinkling eyes to their faces. We hope that every time they hug their fluffy companion, they will be reminded that they are not alone and that we truly care for them.
We came in bearing gifts but we left with our hearts filled to the brim with joy and love seeing their happy faces. It is always an honor to be able to make these brave soldiers smile amidst everything.
May the future allow us to be of service to more people in need.
