The Helping Hands Philippines will be returning to Tacloban City from February 10th to March 8th 2020.


We will continue our medical outreach efforts in the typhoon survivor community of GMA Kapuso Village, comprised of approximately 10,000 typhoon survivors (and growing!). We will bolster the health skills of our 10 community health workers and their head community health worker, RubieLyn Chu, provide general clinics to each community with free medications, and provide weekly health education sessions tailored to the needs and desires of each community.


The Canadian team will include Dr. Michael Bartucci and two Canadian family physician residents from the University of Toronto (Dr. Victoria Au and Dr. Elizabeth Fung), and many local medical students, nurses, and volunteers. ​
