PIA Press Release

RC East Davao donates P300T medicines for MAHARLIKA's mission

By Rose Palacio

Davao City (12 August) -- Rotary Club of East Davao president Rodel Riezl S.J. Reyes together with its board members turned-over various medicines and dental supplies worth P303,838.30 to the Maharlika Charity Foundation.

The medicines and dental supplies will be used in the Specialized and Rehabilitative Surgical Outreach Mission for the indigents and indigenous people of Valencia, Bukidnon on (August 8-12) and for Maharlika's succeeding surgical missions.

In partnership with the RC East Davao in several outreach missions to several places in Mindanao region, the MAHARLIKA (since 2000) have successfully conducted 18 missions benefiting no less than five thousand patients and conducted free surgical operations in more than three thousand patients.

It will be recalled that MAHARLIKA, through its president Dr. Rizal Aportadera, has dedicated its mission to serve others especially the needy.

Dr. Aportadera, was nominated in 2004 to the 3rd TRIENNIAL AWARDS for Exemplary Individual in Visayas and Mindanao.

A Davaoeno Dr. Aportadera who has been at the helm of Maharlika since its birth in 1973, has dedicated his life for the service of others and has share with the less fortunate, his blessings and talent especially those needing surgical services.

"What is life if it is not consecrated for others," he once said as he carried on Maharlika's mission of touching the lives of marginalized and indigent indigenous peoples in the hinterlands of Mindanao. "If the idea is noble, Somebody up there does not close his eyes," he said.

Dr. Aportadera looks at his life and Maharlika as "two interwoven threads." "But I consider my labor with Maharlika as the most rewarding and my way of returning back the blessings in being gifted with the talents to mend and heal people," he said in an exclusive interview.

Dr. Aportadera, together with other philanthropists and corps of volunteer specialists and health workers, are responsible for pushing forward Maharlika's noble mission of conducting medical missions. (PIA-RPalacio) [top]
