Charity Patients Medical Fund
This is the main program of the PGH Medical Foundation, Inc. which provides direct financial assistance to indigent patients confined at the Philippine General Hospital. The amount extended to the patients enable them to procure the necessary medicines, undergo special laboratory and diagnostic test as well as procedures that the hospital does not provide for free. The direct result is recovery of the patient at the soonest possible time. The Foundation needs at least Php 6.0 M per year to be able to assist these patients effectively. At present, the Foundation raises funds through direct solicitation from generous donors and engages in activities such as: musical concerts, art auction, sports tournaments, etc. Partner organizations also allow the deployment of Foundation’s coin banks in their commercial establishments. The ability of the Foundation to support this program varies yearly depending on the income generated form these fund raising events.
