Report from Josephine Buondoc, Physicians for Peace Walking Free Program, Philippines:
"On February 15, the 1st satellite Physicians for Peace prosthetic center was inaugurated at the Clark Development Center (CDC) - Polytechnic School in order to render prosthetic/wheelchair services more accessible to all amputees north of Luzon in the Philippines.
The PFP-CDC prosthetic center was born out of the love for service by the Kapampangan Development Foundation, Clark Development Center, Congressman Lazatin, Rotary International 3790, Social Action Center of Pampanga, Department of Social Welfare and Development, Commission on Higher Education and most especially.... Physicians for Peace Walking Free! The shared efforts of the local military, Pampanga Women's group, UP-PGH technicians, UERMMC physical therapists and Knightsbridge International to ensure the presence and fitting/measurement of recipients, as well as the transportation of equipment, truly kept the spirit of volunteerism alive!
With all gears set towards establishing the prosthetic school, CDC has committed the prosthetic center as a center for affiliation of trainees and Jocelyn Wong, our certified prosthetist volunteer strengthened her commitment towards supervising the CDC technicians! Thank you for the continuing support !"
