Thank you to the Maharlika Charity Foundation and Tzu Chi Zamboanga City, 53 children with cleft lip now can smile widely when they grow up. For three days, May 5 to 7, volunteer doctors, nurses and staff of these two foundations joined forces and had successfully conducted cleft lip operations at the Tzu Chi Center in Zamboanga Medical Center

Davao-based Maharlika Charity Foundation, founded in May 1973, have treated for free thousands of poor of poor, disabled patients, burn victims, those suffering from eye defects, congenital anomalies, and other diseases by some of Davao's best medical and dental specialists. It is being supported wholly by donations from individual benefactors, companies, fund-raising drives, government charity agencies, foreign contributions, and from ordinary people. Now it has a modern medical facility, the Maharlika Center, at J.P. Cabaguio Avenue, Davao City, manned by well-trained volunteer medical team.

Muchas gracias, Maharlika and Tzu Chi, for changing the lives of these 53
