ICMPI pastors now covered under PhilHealth
Koronadal City (30 October) -- 150 poor pastors will soon enjoy quality health care through PhilHealth's Sponsored Program effective November 1, 2009 until October 31, 2010.
This was embodied in the Memorandum of Agreement signed between PhilHealth and the International Care Ministries of the Philippines, Incorporated (ICMPI).
"The MOA signing represented ICMPI's vision to partner with government and non-government organizations in transforming the community", said Helen K. Turner, an ICM volunteer.
Turner added that this endeavor is ICMPI's response to provide health and medical assistance to local pastors, who is the backbone of the ministry, for their dedicated service to ICMPI and the ministry.
"Our work here is for the poorest of the poor, those already forgotten by society. We have already helped 5, 000 families since 1994 but much work are yet to be done" shared ICMPI CEO Facundo R. Yeneza.
ICMPI is a HongKong based charity group which funds pro-poor projects to release the poorest of the poor from spiritual, emotional and physical bondage which started its work in the Philippines in 1992 on some parts of Negros, Bohol, and Mindanao, particularly Koronadal City with ICMPI General Santos City as the latest addition to its growing organization.
