With the ever growing need for better healthcare in the Philippines, the Mu Sigma Phi Fraternity alongside the Gawad Kalinga Community Development Foundation conducted a two-part project aiming to address the pressing health issues amongst the different Gawad Kalinga Villages of Las Piñas. The first part of the project is a capability building workshop held last March 5, 2016 aiming to educate different Gawad Kalusugan Health Volunteers from various GK Villages regarding the topics Asthma and Dehydration.
Whereas, the second part happened last March 19, 2016 with the Gawad Kalusugan Volunteers lecturing the same issues to the GK Sta. Rita community themselves.
