Manila Central University (MCU) and the Joseph Clinic, a non-profit, non-government institution under the Archdiocese of Seoul in South Korea, conducted a community outreach program in Maysilo, Malabon last October 3, 2014.

Local residents, especially the less fortunate, were given free medical and dental services. Among the services that were provided were optical, dental, laboratory, physical therapy, EENT, pharmacy, paediatric and many more.

MCU students, medical practitioners, faculty and employees and Joseph Clinic volunteers led by director Rev. Fr. Choi Young Sik Matthias joined hands in attending to the patients’ needs. The outreach program was a valuable experience to the student volunteers as it prepares them and enriches their knowledge in treating patients and giving their share to the poor.

The clinic in Malabon is an extension facility of the Joseph Clinic in Seoul. The clinic in South Korea has been in existence for over 28 years and caters to the health needs of the poor people of the diocese. The Archdiocese of Seoul works in close coordination with Rev. Fr. Rufino P. Yabut of the Social Services Ministry of the Diocese of Caloocan City.

Among the MCU officials present were President Dr. Aristotle T. Malabanan, Vice President for Academic Affairs Prof. Petrona A. Benitez, University Registrar Ms. Aini E. Salvadora, Research Director Venus A. Solar and College of Medicine Dean Dr. Elvira M. Abreu.

The medical mission and activity at the Joseph Clinic in Maysilo, Malabon is the first of the continuing MCU community outreach and extension program.
