“Whatever you did to the least of these brothers and sisters, you did for me” - Matthew 25:40

The Skin Research Foundation of the Philippines Inc. (SRF), in cooperation with Jose R. Reyes Memorial Medical Center designated now as the National Specialty Center for Dermatology, and Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO), conducted a multi-specialty medical mission with the theme “Agarang Lunas, Aksyon Agad” last March 11, 2023 at Malabon Sports Center. The Philippine Cancer Society, Hospital on Wheels by Dr. Jim Sanchez, Integrated Bar of the Philippines (CalMaNa Chapter) and the City Government of Malabon also participated in this meaningful event.

The day was started by a Skin Care Lecture by Dr. Aimee Cara Vergara while patients were waiting for their consultation or dermatological procedure. Patients were then assisted to their assigned dermatologist for their skin, hair, and nail consult. The department was able to cater to more than 280 patients with various diseases of the skin, hair and nails including atopic dermatitis, tinea, psoriasis, squamous cell carcinomas, leprosy etc. Patients were very delighted with their free medications through donations from SRF, PCSO, and our friendly pharmaceutical companies. Patients in need of dermatological procedures such as electrocautery, extraction, snip excisions for warts, acrochordon, molluscum contagiosum, dermatosis papulosis nigra were done. Post-operative oral and topical medications were also given. The event was also graced by Cong. Federico Sandoval and City Mayor Jeannie Sandoval who expressed their deepest gratitude to the department for bringing dermatology specialists to help the people of Malabon.

Each year, the department finds opportunities to bring our services and expertise to communities that need it the most. Our hearts are filled with so much happiness and contentment to be able to see the smiles of our patients receiving the dermatologic care and  free medications they need.
