Outreach Activity at Sta. Rita Orphanage
The morning of May 20, 2018 proved to be a fruitful one for our department. Our consultants were welcomed by the Assistant Directress and Program Manager, Sister Merlyn Perlarion AR, into the St. Rita Orphanage. It was a delight playing games with the 22 orphans that day. More than that however, our Pediatric Ophthalmologists spent time checking on the eyes of the children, determining who would be needing glasses and further ophthalmic evaluation.
The volunteer consultants from the department and their families went home happy and humbled by the infectious laughter, contented smiles and simple joys of the orphans.
