MEDICAL MISSION TRIP IN THE PHILIPPINES

OPERATION NUEVA ECIJA: JANUARY 2013

On January of 2013 Dr. De La Cruz started his medical/surgical mission trip in The Philippines at Nueva Ecija to help impoverished children with cleft lip and cleft palate. The medical mission with Operation Bayanihan had seen over 425 patients PER DAY, and we performed over 22 surgical cases PER DAY despite our limited medical/surgical supplies and one to two available anesthesiologists. They desperately needed our help.  Because of Dr. De La Cruz missionary work and humanitarian efforts, he had been awarded the "Helping Hands Award" by St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital; The "We Are One Humanitarian Award" in Stockholm, Sweden; and the "Outstanding Corporate Citizen" Award by Global International.  He also was recently awarded in 2018 by the United States Congress in recognition of his humanitarian efforts.

OPERATION ANTIQUE: FEBRUARY 2015

During Operation Antique, our medical team had seen over 2,000 patients and we performed over 300 surgical procedures to help the indigent population in Antique, Philippines.   We had help children with congenital anomalies such as cleft lip and cleft palate, and congenital hand anomalies.  We also helped indigent patients with breast cancer and thyroid cancer.
