DMCI Homes Medical Mission 2011 in Taguig

May 28, 2011



Camaraderie and a close sense of community is a key element to the success of every DMCI Homes project. More than providing comfortable and beautiful shelters, projects from the country’s premiere Triple-A developer are known to promote activities and options that strengthen ties not just among family members, but among neighbors and friends as well. Relationships are deeply nourished, and a lifetime bond is established as a foundation of harmonious living.

DMCI Homes, however, goes beyond the boundaries of their property in promoting this sense of camaraderie. The company also reaches out to their neighbors outside of their walls, and engages in projects that establish their developments as part of a bigger community.

One such project is the recently concluded DMCI Homes Medical Mission CSR Program 2011 held in Brgy. Ususan, Taguig City last May 28.

Through the project, 250 less fortunate individuals from neighboring communities where DMCI Homes’ Acacia Estates is located became beneficiaries of a medical mission program sponsored by the company.

Acacia Estates, which is located also in Brgy. Ususan, is a 150-hectare land development comprising thriving communities of DMCI Homes, namely: Rosewood Pointe, Royal Palm Residences, Mahogany Place Phase 1-3 and Cedar Crest.

The medical services offered during the day were: free medical consultation, free ECG for 35 years old and above, a health and wellness lecture which covered topics like personal hygiene, proper nutrition, first aid treatment, and medical conditions like asthma, skin diseases, heart disease and diabetes.

A nutritious feeding activity was also done for the younger recipients while free medicines (appropriate for patient sickness) and free multi-vitamins were also given away.

Most of the participants for the day’s activities involved volunteers like DMCI Homes employees, medical and health practitioners from DMCI Homes, DMCI Holdings subsidiary companies and RGO Laboratory and Diagnostic Center, officials and health workers from Brgy. Ususan.

This is one of the many CSR activities that DMCI Homes has lined-up to give-back to the public the support the company has been getting through the years. The activity was also born out of the company’s desire to be involved and help less fortunate individuals within and around a DMCI Homes township development.

The activity is also a medical awareness campaign that teaches ways on how to improve health and everyday living within the neighborhood. This also aims to inspire residents from DMCI Homes’ projects in Taguig to participate, be involved and reach out to others.

Last year, DMCI Homes also conducted a Medical Mission program in Brgy Bangkal, where DMCI Homes Corporate Head Office is located. More than 200 individuals from the area were provided with free medical consultation and medicines.

Next activity of DMCI Homes will be the Blood-letting Drive in collaboration with Red Cross this coming month of July 2011.
