The Bicol Clinic Foundation is a humanitarian effort to bring medical attention to people who have never received "first world" health care. The Bicol Clinic Foundation establishes itself as a provider of medical care to under served areas on a small scale- one village at a time.
The Bicol Clinic Foundation wishes to forge cooperation between American medical training and third-world medical problems. Our goal is to provide excellent medical care to all those who present themselves at our doors.
The Bicol Clinic Foundation, (BCF) a qualified 501 © (3) organization, was organized in 2006 by a group of Dr. Mitchell Schuster’s patients to assist him in his extraordinary humanitarian efforts to bring medical attention to people who have never received “first world” health care. We wanted to make it possible for Dr. Schuster and his associates to undertake these journeys with the solid financial backing necessary to have the supplies and equipment that along with their loving care, would make a major difference in the lives of the hundreds of local people they treat. At the Bicol Clinic, we are proud to say that the vast majority of the funds we raise are devoted to making these missions possible…with the bare minimum spent for administrative expenses.
Our long term goals are to:
- Have a fully-functioning hospital in the Philippines
- Develop an internationally-recognized TB program as well as other clinic sites in the third-world
- Expand our rapid response disaster relief team
