A Health Facility Built Out of Love and Charity

In line with the assistance program of the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes- Sweepstakes Employees Union (PCSO-SEU) and Mater et Puer Foundation  for the survivors of Typhoon Sendong, the City Government of Cagayan de Oro became the recipient of an integrated health facility.

Therapeutic Intervention for Children Under Stress Due to Calamities

When Typhoon Sendong struck the cities of Cagayan de Oro and Iligan, thousands of survivors were not only  left homeless but severely traumatized as well.  The urgent need for psycho-social support became apparent. 

To address this problem, the Mater et Puer Foundation, together with its partner, the PCSO-SEU-PEMBF, provided logistical support to bring in a team of trauma psycho-social experts headed by Mr. Jojet Mondares in order to train volunteers on the basics of debriefing trauma victims, especially children.

The Road To Devastation

When tropical storm Sendong hit Mindanao in December 2011, Mater et Puer Foundation, in partnership with the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office- Sweepstakes Employees Union- PCSO Employees Mutual Benefit Fund (PCSO-SEU-PEMBF), did not waste time in sending relief goods/hygiene kits to its victims in the hardest hit areas of Cagayan de Oro City and Iligan City. 

The Mother and Child Foundation

Access to basic health and medical services provided by the government are difficult to those who are poverty-stricken or those who are separated by distance to the mainstream lowland life.

It is therefore a moral and civic obligation of other sectors to provide what is necessary and adequate to reach out to this marginalized sector of society in consonance with the basic principle of social justice and equality.

With this in mind, Mater et Puer Foundation, Inc. came into being in 2003.

The first question which the priest and the Levite asked was: "If I stop to help this man, what will happen to me?" But... the good Samaritan reversed the question: "If I do not stop to help this man, what will happen to him?"
