LCW/LCP’s Health Program
The LCP Health Program strategically plans and implements essential programs in order to meet their objective, mission, and vision. The ministry objective is to promote optimal physical health of all LCP members including children, youth, and parents. Regular physical assessment for children and youth receiving sponsorship/scholarship is one among many of the health preventive services offered by the clinic. The assessments are scheduled by the LCP paramedics according to the child’s birth date. The LCP friendly clinic gives clients free medication after their consultation. The free medications (when available from USA shipments) a given by the aide of our LCP nurse. Dental services are also provided on limited basis. Training and workshops are provided to staff and paramedics in health preventives services. Loans are made to LCP members needing immediate medical assistance with a plan for repayment. Malnourished children are provided food and multivitamin supplements. They are re-evaluated every three months. Two soup kitchens in the most depressed communities provide daily lunches to 112 malnourished children along with multivitamins shipped from the USA.
The Handclasp Program helps children with different kinds of developmental disabilities, either inborn or acquired. This is accomplished through partnership with the Liliane Foundation, Rotary Clubs, Shriners, and other non government agencies (NGO’s) and LCW donors. LCP strives to help these children have equal opportunities – a gateway toward sustainability. When needed and finances are available operations are performed by specialist either in Manila or Cebu.
