Gubat St. Anthony Cooperative Program on Women​

Gubat St. Anthony Cooperative (GSAC) in partnership with Alfredo Yuchengco (AY) Foundation and Sorsogon Medical Mission Group Hospital & Health Services Cooperative (SMMGHHS or SorDoc) launched a program for Women with Gynecological Disorder.

The objective of this program is to help indigent women who are suffering from gynecological disorders to be treated. GSAC, AY Foundation and SMMGHHS held a meeting headed by Chairman Rene B. Hermo from GSAC, Dr. Larry Garrido from SMMGHHS and Mr. Leonilo Quinte, AY representative, to address and reach out to those women in need of treatment.

Applicants to the program were from Bulan, Bulusan, Gubat, Irosin, Matnog, and Sorsogon City. The total applicants who have undergone medical screening is 76, and out of 76, only 29 had undergone gynecological operation.

This program has been successful with the help of everyone. It is really more blessed to give than to receive. Reaching out to those vulnerable sectors gave us a lesson for a lifetime. 

“A heartfelt gratefulness can never be compared to material things.”
