Anchor Land Donates Mobile Clinic For Cancer Screening in Metro Manila
Listed property developer Anchor Land donated a mobile clinic to the Philippine Cancer Society (PCS).
The mobile clinic is considered a valuable addition to PCS’ Mobile Cancer Screening facilities, which will target small barangays across Metro Manila, promoting cancer awareness and early cancer detection services.
Anchor Land President Elizabeth Ventura leads the turn-over ceremony of the mobile clinic. Also present in the event were PCS Board of Trustees Officer Dr. Kelly S. Salvador, PCS Board of Advisers Member and Best Dressed Women of the Philippines Event Chairperson Consul Helen M. Ong, PCS Executive Director Dr. Rachael Marie B. Rosario and Jayelles President and Best Dressed Women of the Philippines PR and Operations Chief Roselle Rebano.
“In line with Anchor Land’s commitment to caring for the communities where we build our residential projects, we hope to contribute in raising awareness of different kinds of cancer and providing easy access to health facilities for the impoverished families in the communities here in Metro Manila,” Ventura said.
The mobile clinic will carry the equipment necessary for cervical cancer and breast cancer screening. It will offer the Single Visit Approach through Visual Inspection of Acetic Acid Wash (SVA-VIA) with cryotherapy, clinical breast exam and a 30-minute lecture on cancers in women.
“The mobile clinic donated by Anchor Land will allow us to reach the communities that are difficult to penetrate due to narrow roads and alleys. With the size of this bus, we can screen three times more than the number of patients we used to serve,” Dr. Salvador said.
In the long run, Anchor Land’s mobile clinic will enhance detection of different kinds of cancer at early stages, and provide fast treatment to those patients afflicted with cancer of the breast, cervix, and ovary.
