Lebumfacil-Santa Ana Medical Center
Since 2006, Tesari has operated a healthcare clinic that offers general health care, vaccination, dental care and cataracts treatment in Toledo, a town near Cebu City.
We visit 38 barangays and barrios a month to provide free medical services and nutrition support to people who cannot reach the healthcare clinic.
Since 2006, Tesari has delivered nutrition support to children, helping them to reach their full development potential. Multi-vitamin syrup bottles are provided to around 15,000 children a month, which helps to bridge essential nutrient gaps.
