The Mission of Gawad Kalinga USA (GK USA) is to build strong communties in the U.S. that foster pride in the Filipino-American identity, inspire civic action, cultivate spirit of Bayanihan and act together to end poverty in the Philippines.
It is the same spirit of caring , sharing and helping that fuels the work of the Bisaya Medical Association (BMA), the belief that it is the collective acts of people which makes great and even more heroic visions possible.
BMA is one of the earliest responders to build a GK Bisaya Medical Village in Talisay, Cebu composed of about 27 houses in 2005. Several years later, the BMA and BMA Auxilliary and all its members donated the BMA Medical Auxilliary Clinic with medical supplies and equipments and help take care of the medical needs in the GK Village.
As a BMA member, take pride and accept with humility the acts of heroism from each and everyone of us. Our historical and annual BMA Medical Missions contributing to the medical care of our Kababayans and contributing millions of pesos for Hospital and Birthing equipments.
We wll be in the next phase of building and participating in the rising economy in the Philippines.
In closing, allow me to congratulate the BMA and BMA Auxilliary and all its members for all these acts of heroism.
