Floirendo Foundation donates to Tebow Cure
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
