Let’s Save the Brain Foundation
Let’s Save the Brain Foundation aims to provide proper medical care for indigent patients of the University of the Philippines – Philippine General Hospital’s Department of Neurology. This is made possible through the selfless service of local doctors who’ve chosen to provide free services to our marginalized countrymen.
The patients served by the foundation include those suffering from epilepsy, stroke, Central Nervous System infections (encephalitis, abscess, meningitis, etc), hydrocephalus, and brain injuries.
All these conditions can be fatal without proper diagnostics, treatment, and medications.
With the efforts of these compassionate doctors, a large part of the work is done. However, finances are still needed to support the patients.
This is why Let’s Save the Brain seeks partnerships and contributions from kind-hearted individuals and groups through their primary fundraising initiative, the Patient Welfare Fund. These funds support other medical needs such as laboratory tests, brain imaging procedures, life support systems, life-saving medicines, and other medical equipment for those who cannot afford it.
