Canadian Medical Missions Society Annual Fundraising Event

cmms-surgical-team-2011September 1, 2011.  The Canadian Medical Mission Society (CMMS) issues invitations to Canadians living in the Metro Vancouver to its annual Fall Celebration to raise funds needed to support its medical mission to the Philippines.  This fundraising event is the second one since its inception in 2010, and is scheduled for October 1, 2011 at the Delta Airport Hotel and Conference Centre in Richmond at 6 pm.

The CMMS is a registered non-profit Society with a main purpose of undertaking medical missions to
Third World countries to promote the well-being and improve the quality of life of indigent patients by providing free medical, surgical and dental services.  The society is headed by Dr. Dan Vargas, president of CMMS. Dr. Vargas was joining medical missions since 2003, and last year, he organized the Canadian Medical Mission Society where most of the 32 members are family members and close friends.

The Society is again scheduled to embark on its next medical mission in February 2012 to Tarlac, Philippines, a developing country in dire need of help. Last year, the CMMS team dedicated two weeks of medical, dental and surgical mission to the provinces of Ilocos Sur and Tarlac, where total of 1,085 patients were treated, some of whom came from outlying areas with no access to transportation services.

The mission also provided hearing tests, hearing aids and appropriate medications to patients who were unable to afford them. Due to the overwhelming number of cases needing treatment in Tarlac, the CMMS
has committed to continue its mission there in 2012.

Donors can provide support to the Society’s mission in the following ways:
