he months of April and May have always been highly anticipated by the brothers of the Phi Kappa Mu. To them, this is a time to learn and reach out to different communities through various activities, highlighted by the annual summer medical and surgical missions.

Upbearing the Fraternity’s tradition of Service, the Phi Kappa Mu partnered with the Phi Lambda Delta Sorority in conducting various free medical and surgical missions to various municipalities, which include Antipolo, Cavite, Oriental Mindoro and Aklan among others. Through the leadership of the Fraternity’s Senior Guardian of the Temple Mikhail Gopez Amante Φ 2011 and the Sorority’s Sister Caritas Maria Angela M. Villa Φ 2011, the PHI missions were able to cater to over 2,000 patients during the months of April and May.

“Araw ni Inang”, a medical, dental, and surgical mission offered to residents of Antipolo and nearby towns by the Mariñas family in honor of Mrs. Cristina Mariñas, is an annual engagement of both the Fraternity and Sorority. Held last April 13, 2013, the mission succeeded to provide 400 medical and 400 ophthalmologic consultations, almost 300 minor operations, 100 tooth extractions, 70 free pap smear screening and almost 300 vitamin B supplementation. Three cheers to our gracious host Brod John Paul Emerson Serrato Mariñas Φ ‘04B for the successful event!

Surgical missions held in Boracay and Puerto Galera coupled service and learning with rest and recreation for the brods and sisses. The Boracay surgical mission, held this year last May 10-14, 2013, has been graciously hosted by sis Dr. Cristina Alindogan Teotico-Ching Φ ’92 for fifteen years straight since the late 1990s. Surgical missions were held in Barangays Yapak, Manocmanoc and Motag in partnership with Metropolitan Doctors Medical Clinic and Centro Escolar University Dental Alumni Association for three days. Close to 500 patients were served by the surgical and dental missions. Attending to patients tirelessly during the day, the night presents perfect opportunities for the brods and sisses to unwind and enjoy the island.

Brod Francis Emil Batnag Daytec Φ ’94, SE ’99-’00 hosted this year’s medical mission in Puerto Galera held last May 27-28, 2013. This annual engagement of the Fraternity and Sorority extends medical and surgical assistance to the more distant areas of Luzon.
