May 4, 2015

Representatives from the U.S. and Philippine governments and civil society organizations formally opened the Tebow CURE Hospital in Davao City, giving children with orthopedic conditions a chance for a better quality of life.

The six-story, state-of-the-art facility specializes in pediatric orthopedics, providing charitable treatment to children with conditions like knock knees, bowed legs, and neglected clubfoot.

“The U.S. government is pleased to support the Tebow CURE Hospital in helping underserved children in Mindanao,” USAID Mission Director Gloria D. Steele said, noting that USAID invests in education, health, economic development, governance and the environment throughout Mindanao. “We work to improve the health of all Filipinos, ensuring that men and women can raise healthy families and that young people can pursue more opportunities, unlocking their potential to advance prosperity and stability throughout the nation.”

In my years as Mission Director of USAID in the Philippines, I have been a frequent visitor of Bohol, in work-related and personal capacities. I thoroughly enjoyed all those visits, not only because of Bohol’s unique attractions, but more importantly, the friendship and warm hospitality that the Boholanos offer. I’m sure I am not alone in feeling this way. I look forward to exploring your exhibit as I will surely discover new places that will persuade me to come back again. I may take advantage of the travel discounts myself.
