Over 200 Pasig River relocatees receive free medical aid from PRRC

The Pasig River Rehabilitation Commission (PRRC) in partnership with St. Joseph Academy of Valenzuela Alumni Association, Salcres Physical Therapy Foundation International Inc., Myshare Foundation and Wow Health and Wellness Optical Clinic, spearheaded a medical mission on June 2, 2018 at Jaime Cardinal Sin Village (JCSV), 728 Housing, Punta Sta. Ana, Manila City.


This free medical mission was given to at least 200 individuals relocated from the banks of the Pasig River into one of the country’s first in-city relocation sites in Metro Manila.

To be recalled, PRRC and Serviam Foundation Inc, relocated these families living in shanties and makeshift houses beside the Pasig River last quarter of 2008 to first quarter of 2009 to improve the health and living conditions of our fellow Filipinos exposed to polluted waterways help and to improve water quality through the reduction of untreated solid and liquid wastes dumped by the informal settlers.

The objectives of this medical mission are: (1) to provide the JCSV community medical care to those who needed it, who have limited or no access to it, and who cannot afford it, (2) to provide health assessment so that the community attains a greater degree of self-sufficiency, and (3) to intensify PRRC’s Information, Education and Communication Campaign by providing high level of public awareness in taking care of the environment.

The activity was participated by medical doctors, physical therapists, optometrists, nurses, PRRC, partner agencies, and JCSV relocatees as recipients of the said project.



“These health missions are significant because it does not only provide healthcare services to our relocated families even after nine years since they were rescued from the banks of the Pasig River, but most importantly, it also encourages the community to assume responsibility for their health and their environment”, said PRRC Executive Director Jose Antonio E. Goitia.
