In the early morning of July 9, 2018, when most people are asleep, residents of Puerto Princesa, Palawan, Philippines, began to line up at the city coliseum for the opening of a large medical clinic outreach in the province. The initiative, dubbed “AWR Mega Medical Clinic,” ran for three days.
The clinic, a joint effort by Adventist World Radio (AWR) and LifeSource International Medical Clinics, a humanitarian service associated with the Seventh-day Adventist Church, offered residents a wide range of free medical services. Patients gained access to dental care, medical consultation, minor surgeries, optical services, laboratory tests, a pharmacy, and counseling. The mega-clinic is an event leading toward the “Palawan for Christ” evangelistic meetings, which are taking place in the city coliseum July 13-29. At the same time, the “Palawan for Christ” program is part of the greater “Philippines for Christ” movement that will host evangelistic meetings throughout the country in the remaining months of 2018.
