SM Foundation, the social good arm of the SM Group, recently conducted two successful medical missions in the municipalities of Looc and Ibaan, Batangas.

The initiative, which aimed to provide accessible healthcare services to vulnerable communities, served approximately 700 patients.

During the two-day event, residents of Looc and Ibaan received a wide range of free healthcare services. These included medical and dental check-ups, X-rays, and electrocardiogram (ECG) tests performed inside SM Foundation’s state-of-the-art mobile clinic. Additionally, patients underwent blood chemistry tests, as well as screenings for sugar, cholesterol, uric acid, and hemoglobin levels.
