Healing Hands

British Alumni Association holds Medical Missions in Mano Amiga

A child from a disadvantaged family has to work doubly hard in order to succeed in life. Giving him access to quality education is part of the solution, but hardly enough to ensure that he would be able to rise from his circumstance. This is why Mano Amiga Academy is more than just a school. It also serves as a community center, seeking to provide students and their families all the necessary support for them to build a better life.

One important aspect is addressing the health concerns of the community. As part of the PHIL-UK friendship week, the British Alumni Association (BAA) and the British Embassy Manila staff held Medical Missions at Mano Amiga Academy.

The project veered away from the traditional “one-day” format of giving free food and medicine. Under the leadership of Dr. Kenneth Hartigan-Go, the team focused on health education and patient diagnosis. BAA seeks to inculcate among the residents the discipline of regular visits to the local health office and for them to take advantage of the different medical services it offers.

BAA also asked for feedback from the families on how the public health centers could improve their services. It is part of BAA’s objective to help the Taguig local government better address the health concerns in marginalized communities.

The health education component during the Medical Missions focused on disease prevention, reproductive health, proper nutrition, drug abuse responses and other necessary information. Beneficiaries had access to free screening for diabetes and hypertension for adults, and free medical checkups for the children.

You've seen them before.

Sage masters who seem to create MIRACLES.

They travel vast distances and exotic lands to
learn an ancient art.

Kind of like David Carradine in the TV show Kung Fu.

Well one healing art , called Reiki, is an ancient
art so powerful that Reiki masters heal illnesses and
ailments JUST BY TOUCHING the person.

Sometimes, they don't even touch the person.

They just place their hands over the affected
area, and it HEALS.

It gets better, Reiki Masters can even heal people
over vast distances!

This is Jedi level healing!

However, for centuries, mastering the art of Reiki
has been practically impossible for outsiders.

But my friend Owen, has changed all that.

With his system or Reiki Mastery, he uncovered a

A conspiracy to prevent people from learning, no,

Here's the deal: Reiki was INTENDED to be learned
quickly and easily.

That's what the original creator of Reiki intended.

Owen UNCOVERED this conspiracy and how to
teach Reiki the way it was ORIGINALLY taught.

The result: You can attain MIRACLE results in DAYS
instead of years.

Change your life.

In hours.

But that's not all.

You can change other's lives.

Yours Truly,
Mr Ana

P.S. - Owen is offering a special training that
won't be around forever.

He's planning on releasing his training methods on
a large scale.

But for now, it is invitation only.

So, if I were you, I'd take advantage of that as well.

Look forward to hearing from you!
