Floirendo Foun­da­tion do­nates to Te­bow Cure

Sun.Star Davao - - BILLBOARD -

STAY­ING true to its “Reach­ing out to serve” adage, the Don An­to­nio O. Floirendo, Sr. Foun­da­tion re­cently em­barked on a larger scale of a mis­sion in serv­ing those who are in need.

The foun­da­tion turned over a check worth $100,000 or P5.1 Mil­lion to Te­bow Cure Hos­pi­tal, a non-profit hos­pi­tal in Davao City that spe­cial­izes in pe­di­atric ortho­pe­dic care.

This is the sec­ond $100,000 do­na­tion of the Floirendo Foun­da­tion to Te­bow, the first of which was given in 2015. This, on top of its monthly sup­port of P50,000 to the hos­pi­tal, is seen to boost the ca­pac­ity of Te­bow to sup­port more pa­tients who need ortho­pe­dic care but are lim­ited fi­nan­cially.

The foun­da­tion has long been com­mit­ted to work hand in hand with Te­bow Cure in pro­vid­ing the best pos­si­ble as­sis­tance in heal­ing chil­dren with ortho­pe­dic de­for­mi­ties through free con­sul­ta­tions and sub­si­dized surg­eries. Adults in need of med­i­cal at­ten­tion of ortho­pe­dic na­ture may also avail of com­pet­i­tively priced con­sul­ta­tions and surgery, with the same high-level qual­ity of treat­ment.

“The Floirendo Foun­da­tion has been sup­port­ing Te­bow Cure ev­ery month for two years now as we be­lieve in the no­ble cause of the hos­pi­tal to pro­vide free med­i­cal ser­vices to poor chil­dren who are af­flicted with de­for­mi­ties such as clubfeet, hair­lip, and many oth­ers,” said the foun­da­tion’s ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor Rus­sell U. Bar­rizo.

The foun­da­tion be­lieves that this sup­port can go a long way in giv­ing the kids a chance of a good fu­ture.

The Te­bow Cure Hos­pi­tal is a part­ner­ship project of the Tim Te­bow Foun­da­tion and the Cure In­ter­na­tional. The Hos­pi­tal in Davao is part of a net­work of hos­pi­tals and spe­cialty pro­grams in 30 coun­tries all over the world and the first of its kind in the Philip­pines and in Asia. The six-storey, 3,600-square me­ter fa­cil­ity opened its doors in 2015 and also fea­tures the “Timmy's Play­room”, its first out­side of the United States. PR
