Maternal and Child Health Care
The Children’s Mission is running two Health Care Clinics located in the main building at Hills of Grace center and the other is at the San Isidro center, both in Rodriguez, Rizal. They target children under 6 years’ old which is the age when they are susceptible to many diseases and are vulnerable to health issues. Here they are screened by a pediatrician and provided treatment if needed. Pregnant mothers come in for check-ups and health teaching is given. We are offering our services for everyone but are asking for a socialized fee.
