In time for its 10th anniversary celebration, GT Foundation, Inc.

This is the fourth barangay health station built in partnership with Plan International Philippines, a development and humanitarian organization advocating for children’s rights to education, protection, health care and high quality of life.

Besides the provision of primary healthcare to locals, maternal services from pregnancy to post-partum including childcare will also be made accessible. It houses several rooms for consultation, sterilization, recovery, labor and delivery.

As a grant-giving organization, GTFI assists qualified non-government organizations focusing on maternal and child care through the following priority areas: maternal health–construction or rehabilitation and equipping of new barangay health stations; medical and surgical missions; mobile clinics; assistance to public health facilities; training for health care providers on maternal and child health care services; and nutrition.

Two (2) more health stations with birthing facilities are set to be turned over in barangay Kinitaan, North Upi, Maguindanao and barangay Bungued, Datu Odin Sinsuat, Maguindanao this month.

GTFI was established in 2009 to integrate the philanthropic activities of the Ty family by investing in strategic development programs primarily in education, health, and disaster response through direct interventions and grants.
