Junior Chamber International (JCI) Alabang, a non-profit organization, recently concluded a medical mission at Sitio Tuklas in Cupang, Muntinlupa called “UNited4aCause” for the benefit of more than 200 people in need of medical assistance.
JCI Alabang is an organization composed of young entrepreneurs, businessmen, politicians, students, and corporate managers based in the Alabang, Muntinlupa City area with a shared vision and passion for service. In partnership City Councilor Robert Baes and his son Lester Baes, JCI Alabang is giving back to their less-fortunate neighbors in the city.
The medical mission included a feeding program, a free health check-up, and free medicines and eyeglasses. More than 200 residents availed of the services on-site, and they were warmly assisted by the three volunteer doctors and six volunteer nurses.
The medical mission was also JCI Alabang’s first project after their grand induction and turnover ceremonies last February 24, 2016. Newly-inducted members Barnie Gutierez-Alis, Vincent Yumul, and Eugene Lucas Acevedo were thrilled to have managed the day’s events.
“I am so glad that I chose to join JCI Alabang. Community service is so fulfilling because I get reminded of my humble beginnings as a child like the ones I saw today. It’s an absolutely heartwarming experience,” said Barnie Gutierez-Alis, a new member of JCI Alabang.
This event will be one of many more to come in JCI Alabang’s calendar. JCI Alabang aims to reach out to more communities in the months to come.
“Being in JCI Alabang is being about service. We are fortunate to have such gracious volunteer medical staff and of course we are ever thankful for our partnership with Councilor Robert Baes and Lester Baes. I can’t wait to see what’s in store for our chapter,” declared Eugene Lucas Acevedo, another new member.
