Zonta Club of Ilocos Norte financial aids patients
The Zonta Club of Ilocos Norte, Philippines, partnered with the Karmelli Clinic and Hospital to create the Together We Heal: A Surgical Mission Amidst COVID-19 project. The project will fund patients needing surgery. The club was able to support 123 patients for 47 major surgeries and 76 minor surgeries. The patients came from the different municipalities of Ilocos Norte that were financially struggling to pay for their procedures.
The club will continue the project in providing specialized surgical care to financially challenged patients. By providing financial assistance, the club hopes the patients will live a better quality of life post-surgery.
