Construction of Santo Niño Clinic is nearing completion. This two-story clinic will provide medical and surgical treatment for the poor in Cebu City, Philippines. Built to modern medical standards, students and interns from medical, nursing and other professional training programs will work with seasoned professionals to provide up-to-date care for their patients at Santo Niño.
Dr. Lucie Gamboa is pictured here with friends, Carmen, Betsy, Christine and Gloria inside one of the new clinic’s rooms. With help from friends around the world, the finishing work will all be completed in time for the planned opening of the clinic at Easter, 2014. Final fund-raising is underway at this time to purchase supplies and complete construction.

Medical supplies and equipment have arrived in Cebu for the Santo Niño Clinic thanks to the great work of the folks at MedShare who helped us raise the money needed to purchase and ship them. Construction on the clinic itself is proceeding well.
We hope to complete construction and be ready to open the doors by Easter Sunday, April 20, 2014. To do this, we need to raise an additional $50,000.

St. Joe’s Buddies is pleased to announce that, thanks to the generosity of our supporters, biomedical equipment and supplies are being shipped to Cebu, Philippines for used in our new Santo Niño Clinic and for disaster relief efforts.
We are grateful to the folks at MedShare who helped us raise the funds necessary to send this aid.
Our next goal is to raise the $80,000-100,000 needed to complete construction of the Santo Niño Clinic. The clinic is scheduled to open in three months. Doctors, nurses, and other health care professionals are lined up to staff the clinic already. We just need to finish building it.
