The Healing Hands medical mission, conducted by St. Luke's Society (SLS) in the Philippines, provided free medical services to over 500 residents of Olango Island in Lapu-Lapu City on January 27th and 28th. The mission included departments such as internal medicine, dentistry, traditional medicine, and pharmacy.
A total of 38 volunteers from South Korea participated in the mission, along with two Filipino doctors. The Filipino doctor in charge of internal medicine conducted thorough medical examinations, including detailed patient interviews, to diagnose various illnesses among the local residents.
SLS has been conducting medical missions in the past few years, and its scale and the number of participants are growing each year. On top of helping those in need of healing, through the medical mission, SLS also seeks to find more like-minded professionals to form Christ-honoring fellowship in the medical field.
The mission of SLS is not only to bring physical healing and comfort to the sick and needy, but primarily to fulfill the Great Commission through medicine, bringing holistic healing to both medical professionals and patients through the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
May SLS and its Healing Hands Medical Mission bring Christ-centered impact to many more around the world, overcoming diseases in the name of Jesus.
